The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has “condemned in the strongest terms” the shelling of civilians at a trolleybus stop in Donetsk, Ukraine, which killed up to 15 people and injured over 20 others on Thursday, according to the statement. The UNSC has also called for an independent investigation into the incident. “The members of the Security Council underlined the need to conduct an objective investigation and bring perpetrators of this reprehensible act to justice,” the statement said. The trolleybus stop was hit by two shells, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine said on Thursday. The Security Council also stressed the importance of adhering to the Minsk agreements on the ceasefire amid intensified military operations in eastern Ukraine.
