According to Alexander Hug, houses of the civilians continue being shelled from 120 mm mortar launchers in Popasna and Pikuzy (former Kominternove).

“Such escalation is madness and it should be stopped. Important steps are to be taken, one of them is full implementation of the frame agreement of the trilateral contact group regarding disengagement from September 21,” said Hug.
