MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. Kiev’s military over the past 24 hours shelled three times the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), where one shelling was produced from a tank, the republic’s people’s militia said on Saturday.
"Between 6 in the morning on June 12 and 6 in the morning on June 13, we registered three violations of the ceasefire regime," the LuganskInformCentre quoted a representative of the militia.
The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) reported three shelling, where two civilians were killed.
Regular talks of the participants of the Trilateral Contact Group on east Ukrainian settlement comprising representatives of Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were held in the Belarusian capital Minsk on February 10-12. Talks of the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine) leaders on the Ukrainian issue also ended February 12 in Minsk.
A 13-point Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements was adopted at the February talks.
The package in particular included an agreement on cessation of fire from February 15, withdrawal of heavy armaments, as well as measures on long-term political settlement of the situation in Ukraine, including enforcement of a special self-rule status for certain districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The ceasefire has been repeatedly violated since.
