MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Kiev security forces have violated the ceasefire regime 12 times, including with the use of heavy weaponry in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) over the past 24 hours, a DPR defence Ministry source reported on Tuesday.
"The Ukrainian side has 12 times violated the ceasefire regime, launching artillery attacks," the source is quoted by the Donetsk news agency.
According to DPR Defence Ministry, as many as 71 mines of 82mm and 120mm calibre, 10 artillery shells and 51 tank shells were launched on the DPR territory. Also, the enemy used rocket launchers and small arms.

The Minsk accords on the Ukrainian settlement were signed on February 12, 2015 after 14-hour negotiations between the leaders of Normandy Four (Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko) in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk. Concurrently, Minsk hosted a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement. A 13-point Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements 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 establishment of working subgroups as priority tasks. The ceasefire however has been repeatedly violated.
