Kiev, Separatists Accuse Each Other of Attacks as Peace Talks Resume

DONETSK, Ukraine Kiev forces and pro-Russian separatists accused each other on Tuesday of launching dozens of attacks against their respective positions, just one day after Minsk peace negotiations resumed with the mediation of Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or OSCE.

The city of Donetsk, the main stronghold of the rebels, reported that early on Tuesday there were periodic artillery attacks, leading to the destruction of at least one house in a neighborhood of the city.

The Ukrainian military command reported 27 violations of the cease-fire committed by rebel militias in different parts of the demilitarized zone that separates the two sides, while pro-Russians reported 40 attacks by Kiev forces.

Although both parties claim to have withdrawn heavy weapons from the line of separation, as required by the Minsk agreements, Kiev and the rebels both continually accuse each other of using high-caliber artillery against enemy positions.

The two sides will meet on Wednesday in the Belarusian capital although the situation in eastern Ukraine deteriorated significantly over the weekend, as artillery fire was used again in Donetsk, inhabited by nearly one million people before the start of the conflict one year ago.
