Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) Staff press center.
The spot report reads: "The illegal armed groups of the "Donetsk People's Republic" shelled residential neighborhoods of the town of Avdiivka using heavy weapons for the second time running despite the agreements reached at the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on Feb. 15 and March 1.
"Today, at 5:10 p.m., three tank shells hit the observation post of the Ukrainian side of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the ceasefire and demarcation line stabilization. OSCE SMM surveillance camera was also installed on this building. The observers were evacuated. The information on the damage inflicted by the shelling is being verified.
"Such actions of the illegal armed groups of the "DPR" demonstrate gross violation of the Minsk agreements, downright unwillingness to fulfill their commitments made under the Trilateral Contact Group, intentional plotting and commission of terrorist attacks against civilians and members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the Staff stressed.
