Terrorists escalated shelling of Debaltseve - ATO press center

The terrorists have escalated shelling of Debaltseve city, the Donetsk region.

This was announced by the ATO press center, Censor.NET reports.

"During the day on Monday the terrorists were firing main guns at the Debaltseve direction. The terrorists have been stating for several days that they had seized or surrounded the city. In fact, they have been lying to the whole world and their Kremlin puppeteers. It is also obvious that after arrival of another so-call 'humanitarian convoy,' the terrorists are again supplied with hundreds of tons of shells, mortar bombs, and rockets.

The mercenaries fired with mortars and artillery as well, aiming Debaltseve for four times, Komuna, Luhanske, and Krymske for two times, as well as Shumy, Mius, Troitske, Novozvanivka, and Popasna.

"It is worth noting that shellings are conducted in a criminal manner. It is not difficult to count how many tons of supplies were fired by the terrorists at peaceful towns and villages, as well as the ATO forces positions. Each time the mercenaries place their Grads, mortars, and artillery directly in settlements which are temporarily controlled by the terrorists - in residential areas, on territories of kindergartens, hospitals, other facilities, knowing that Ukrainian soldiers would not fire back," the message reads.
