"On February 28 Kiev officially launched the withdrawal of heavy artillery systems from positions near the village of Peski, adjacent to Donetsk airport and being now under the control of the National Guard units of Ukraine. On this day, according to a published report of the special monitoring mission, OSCE observers recorded sounds of artillery fire from an area of 10 kilometers south-east from the village Netaylovo, - Basurin said. - At the same time, other observers of the OSCE mission and the International Red Cross, who were in the Donetsk airport, together with our representatives came under fire of the Ukrainian artillery from village Peski, located in just 10 kilometers south-east of Netaylovo. "

17:57 The possible introduction of peacekeepers in Ukraine without the consent with the DPR and LPR will only add fuel to the fire of Ukrainian domestic conflict, the head of Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Leonid Slutsky.

Deployment of peacekeepers in Ukraine should first be agreed with the DPR and LPR. Without their consent and approval it is pointless to talk about anything. This will just add fuel to fire of Ukrainian domestic conflict. Especially because there are major differences in the perception of the nationality of peacekeepers

- Slutsky told reporters.

"There is fighting in Peski, AFU reinforcements move to Avdeyevka, Donetsk is periodically under fire. In the area of ​​Peski, where the positions of the militia and the OUN punitive battalions and the Ukrainian army are divided by less than a kilometer, the aggressors forced melee and fired at DPR Army defense lines, provoking return fire. Fight continued for about an hour. Small arms were used first, then mortars, and then heavy artillery. At the same time enemy howitzers fired a few shots in the direction of Putilovka bridge and the district Gladkovka from Avdeyevka. Clashes near Donetsk airport did not stop for the last three days. Ukrainian army continues to pull up reinforcements to Avdeyevka, to conduct the rotation of personnel actively and to concentrate a large assault force on this direction. The same process takes place in the south-western outskirts of the city - in Kurakhovo - Krasnogorovka - Staromikhailovka. Radio intercepts confirm that the Ukrainian side is conducting sporadic shelling of the territory of the DPR, also with MLRS "Grad". And intelligence data suggest that the punishers are preparing for reinforcement. At Peski at least three companies of Ukrainian fighters are expected to arrive as reinforcements. Militia actively oppose to AFU attempts to change the existing line of demarcation and they save space for maneuver. Punitive intentions to capture buffer zones and even minimally reshape the front line in their favor are also fought back. "
