MOSCOW, July 22. /TASS/. The Ukrainian forces have shelled the Krutaya Gora settlement in the Luhansk region from anti-tank guns, the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) people’s militia said on Wednesday.

"At 4:20pm on July 21, [Ukrainian forces] shelled three times the Krutaya Gora settlement from anti-tank guided missiles from the Zheltoye settlement," the LPR’s people’s militia told Luhansk Inform Center. No one was injured in the incidents, it added.

Weaponry withdrawal

On July 18, the self-proclaimed republics announced the start of withdrawing tanks and armored vehicles of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line to at least 3 kilometers. DPR weaponry remains only to the north of Donetsk and in Debaltsevo - the tensest parts of the contact line. LPR is withdrawing weaponry everywhere along the contact line, excluding the area near the Schastye settlement.

Withdrawing weaponry of less than 100mm caliber has been discussed in Minsk for a long time, but the sides failed to reach an agreement. DPR and LPR decided to start the withdrawal unilaterally in the interests of establishing peace.
