MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are increasing the intensity of the shelling of the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). Over the past 24 hours, 86 violations of the ceasefire regime have been registered, the DPR Defense Ministry said.
"The intensity of the artillery bombardments by the Ukrainian side grew by 35 over the past 24 hours and totaled 86 ceasefire violations," the Donetsk news agency quotes the ministry as saying.
The Defense Ministry noted that the Ukrainian Army had fired 116 artillery and 38 tank shells on the territory of the Donetsk republic, 235 82-mm and 120-mm mines and used anti-aircraft installations, grenade launchers and small arms.
It added that the cities of Donetsk, Gorlovka, Yasinovataya and Debaltsevo, as well as a number of populated localities, had come under fire.
The ceasefire in the Donbas region formally came into force on February 15. The requirement to halt the hostilities is envisaged in the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements. This document was signed by the Contact Group members on Febrary 12. The self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk have repeatedly stated that the observance of the truce depended entirely on the Ukrainian side.
