MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. The pro-Kiev forces have shelled the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) seven times over the past twenty-four hours, wounding a self-defense fighter, an LPR militia spokesman said on Sunday.
"The ceasefire regime was breached seven times from 06:00 on May 30 to 06:00 on May 31. One militiaman was wounded," the spokesman told the LuganskInformCenter news agency.
The Kiev military mostly used grenade launchers, 82-mm mortars and small arms, the LPR militia spokesman said.
The LPR militia also registered 12 instances of 120-mm mortar fire from the Shchastya thermal power plant against a crossing near the village of Oboznoye and the launch of an antitank rocket, the spokesman said.
The Contact Group on the Ukraine crisis settlement signed a document in the Belarusian capital on February 12, that was approved by the leaders of the Normandy format countries comprising Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine. The document stipulated a set of measures for implementing the Minsk accords on settling the Ukraine crisis.
The document, in particular, envisages establishing a security zone at least 50 km wide and the conflicting parties’ obligations to pull back their artillery systems with the caliber of 100 mm and more to an equal distance.
