LUGANSK, December 17. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces shelled militia positions in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic five times over the past 24 hours, the LPR militias said on Monday.
"The shelling targeted areas in the towns of Frunze and Donetsky, the villages of Kalinovka and Smeloye," the militias reported, according to the LuganskInformCenter.
The Ukrainian forces opened fire from artillery weapons, grenade launchers and small arms, the report said.
Since the beginning of the Donbass conflict in April 2014 the sides have declared more than 20 ceasefires. The latest agreement of the Contact Group on the so-called "back-to-school" ceasefire took effect on August 29. However, no lasting truce has been achieved so far.
