KYIV, April 15 /Ukrinform/. An anti-terrorist operation has begun in the northern part of Donetsk region.

Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said this at a Verkhovna Rada meeting on Tuesday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"An anti-terrorist operation has begun today in the northern part of Donetsk region. It will be conducted step by step, responsibly, carefully," Turchynov said.

Head of the Center for Military and Political Studies Dmytro Tymchuk said that the main task of the counter-terrorism operation was to avoid civilian casualties.

"However, given the widespread involvement of the local population in separatist rallies, such guarantees cannot be given," he said.
