For the last two days, the Russian occupation forces carried out massive attacks across the contact line using all available weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements.

This has been said in a statement of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine on deterioration of the situation in Donbas, Government’s portal reported.

"We demand from the Russian Federation to cease hostilities immediately and to comply strictly with the ceasefire. We request our international partners to step up political and diplomatic pressure on the Kremlin to stop dangerous escalation in Donbas and avoid a humanitarian catastrophe in the region," reads a statement.

Civilians suffer because of the shelling of the residential areas: two civilians have been wounded. The cities of Yasinovata and Avdiyivka were fully cut off from electricity by shelling. More than 400,000 civilians in the region have no access to water, electricity and heating.
