MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Kiev’s military forces have violated the ceasefire regime three times over the past 24 hours, militia of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) told the LuganskInformTsentr news agency.
"At 15:45 on June 23 the shelling was carried out from the direction of the settlement Schastye on the area of the settlement Vesyolaya Gora with a 82-mm mortar. At 16:05 another bombardment with an infantry combat vehicle was registered from the direction of the settlement Zhelobok on a People’s Militia checkpoint. At 21:10 Kiev’s forces shelled the dacha country house area with a 82-mm mortar," the militia’s report says.
The ceasefire regime in the Donbas region formally entered into force on February 15. The demand to halt the hostilities was envisaged by the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements. This document was signed by the Contact Group members on February 12. Officials in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) have repeatedly stated that the truce observance depended entirely on the Ukrainian side.
