MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) defense ministry said government forces violated the ceasefire regime in eastern Ukraine 60 times over 24 hours.
"Sixty violations [of the ceasefire regime] have been registered over the last 24 hours. Our positions were shelled from different types of weapons. As a result of shellings, one militia fighter died and five more were wounded," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the DPR defense ministry as saying.
Kiev’s military operation headquarters said that from 6pm until 12am on April 13, self-defense forces violated the ceasefire regime 26 times.
On February 12, negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" were held in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The talks lasted for around 14 hours. Simultaneously, a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement was held in Minsk.
As a result, agreements were signed that envisage ceasefire in Ukraine’s south-east, heavy weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbas and a constitutional reform in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian forces and DPR and LPR self-defense forces have repeatedly accused each other of violating the ceasefire regime in Donbas.
