MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. The Ukrainian forces have violated the ceasefire regime 46 times over the last 24 hours, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) defense ministry said on Thursday.

"The intensity of shellings by the Ukrainian side constituted 46 violations of ceasefire regime over the last 24 hours," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the DPR defense ministry as saying.

The Kiev forces used multiple rocket launchers, artillery, tanks, anti-aircraft guns and small arms, the defense ministry said. Among the settlements that came under fire were Belaya Kamenka, Gorlovka, Novolaspa, Shirokino, Sakhanka, Lozovoye, Sanzharovka and Spartak. In Donetsk, the Oktyabrsky settlement, airport, Kievsky and Kuybyshevsky districts were shelled.

Minsk agreements on Ukraine

The Minsk accords on the Ukrainian settlement were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The talks lasted for around 14 hours. Simultaneously, a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement was held in Minsk.

The Minsk agreements envisage ceasefire, heavy weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbas, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.

The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
