Early on Tuesday, militants started shelling the villages of Travneve and Hladosove in Donetsk region, the Ukrainian members of the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) have reported on the official Facebook page of the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) Headquarters.
"The Ukrainian side of the JCCC reports: in violation of the provided security guarantees, this morning, November 28, 2017, the illegal armed formations began the shelling of the villages of Travneve and Hladosove (Donetsk region)," the report says.
The Ukrainian side of the JCCC stresses that such actions by the enemy are regarded as another provocation aimed at discrediting the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the ATO zone and hindering access of observers from the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission and representatives of the UN mission who planned to monitor the humanitarian situation and the situation with ceasefire violations by militants in these settlements.
