MOSCOW, June 28. /TASS/. Kiev’s military on Saturday afternoon for several hours shelled from mortars the town of Gorlovka in Ukraine’s east, where a civilian was killed, the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire Regime said on Sunday.

"Late in the afternoon on June 27, the Ukrainian military began shelling Gorlovka, where one civilian was killed," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the Centre.

The shelling continued for about two hours, the source said.

The ceasefire regime in Donbass was announced officially on February 15.

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, 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.
