The Interfax news agency claims the artillery fire originated from the Ukrainian forces. Residents have had enough.“What is it, a truce? How can it even be called a truce? Can’t Poroshenko and his newly-elected government see what is happening, that people are dying?” asked one Slovyansk resident.According to Kyiv another conference call will be held tomorrow, in an effort to find a solution to the crisis.The EU has made clear that if no progress is made on ceasefire arrangements further sanctions on Moscow will be considered.
