Donetsk, Feb 24 – DAN. Donetsk needs to be prepared for any development of situation on the background of the lack of reaction of the guarantor countries to Kiev’s aggression, said the Head of the DPR Denis Pushilin.

The Ukrainian army on Wednesday opened fire targeting the village of Elenovka south of Donetsk; 25 BMP-1 rounds were fired. A power transmission line supplying energy to the township sustained damage.

“This (shelling of Elenovka) raises very serious questions. What actions will we see next on the Ukrainian side? Where is the reaction from those who guarantee a peace negotiation process? Unfortunately, we do not see this reaction. We need to be ready for anything, ” said Pushilin.

There are four checkpoints on the contact line linking the DPR with the Kiev-controlled territory. Due to the coronavirus, only one is operating – “Novotroitskoye – Elenovka”. Humanitarian corridor has been organized there. It is open on Mondays and Fridays. *ot
