MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Kiev’s military violated the ceasefire four times in the past 24 hours and shelled towns in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), a representative of the militia forces said on Monday.

"Between 6:00 a.m. on June 14 and 6:00 a.m. on June 15 they violated the ceasefire regime four times," LuganskInformCentre quoted him.

The militia did not report casualties.

Press service of the Donetsk city administration reported on Monday ten people had been injured over the past 24 hours.

Regular talks of the participants in the Trilateral Contact Group on the east Ukrainian settlement comprising representatives of Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were held in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk on February 10-12. Talks of the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France, and 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 Luhansk regions. The ceasefire has been repeatedly violated since.
