MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. Kiev’s military fired twice at settlements of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic [LPR] over past 24 hours, the republic’s militia reported on Saturday.
"At 8:45 pm on Friday, they fired from the Luhanskaya village aiming at the monument to Prince Igor and the checkpoint of the local militia from AGS and armoured vehicles, and in 45 minutes they used a 122-millimetre mortar, fired 12 mines," LuhanskInformCentre quoted the report.
Regular talks of the participants in the Trilateral Contact Group on the east Ukrainian settlement comprising representatives of Russia, Ukraine and the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation 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 Lugansk regions. The ceasefire has been repeatedly violated since.
