Russia's hybrid military forces have shelled apartment buildings in the village of Maiorsk, using 120mm mortars banned by Minsk accords.

"Today, Russian-occupation troops shelled the settlement of Maiorsk. The Ukrainian side of the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) in Donbas has informed that the enemy used 120mm mortars against civilians," the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Staff wrote on Facebook.

"Fortunately, no local residents were hurt. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine was briefed on the incident," the JFO Staff said.

Such actions by Russian-led militants testify their disregard of all norms of international humanitarian law and pose a threat to the life and health of civilians, as well as inflict considerable damage on local households.
