Ukraine: 7 people hurt in new clashes, rebels accused of Grad rockets attack
Ukraine on Monday accused pro-Russian separatists of firing heavy Grad rockets in violation of a shaky ceasefire between the two sides, as seven people were reported injured in fresh clashes.
Six Ukrainian soldiers were wounded during fighting over the last 24 hours, army spokesman Andriy Lysenko said, stoking fears of an escalation in violence following a month of relative peace since the signing of the agreement.
The interior ministry also said that a civilian had suffered a shrapnel wound in the government-held town of Dzerzhynsk, after it came under mortar fire late Sunday.
Lysenko warned that “the situation remained unstable” along the whole conflict line, where rebels had used mortars, grenades and heavy weapons, against the terms of the ceasefire.
