Ukraine's Foreign Ministry accuses the pro-Russian militants of the shelling of the SMM OSCE observers, which took place on June 22 in the Vodyane village in Donetsk region. The Ministry published the statement on Facebook.

According to, the shelling also burned down the house of local residents.

"We consider this incident as another bold attempt of Moscow and its puppets to intimidate the OSCE observers, to nullify the efforts of the SMM to stabilize the situation on the border line, to prevent an impartial and objective informing the international community about the persistent violations by Russia and the militants, the violations of the ceasefire state and the weapons withdrawal ", reads the statement.
