MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. One civilian has died in the shelling of the town of Gorlovka by Ukrainian forces, administration head Roman Khramenkov told Donetsk News Agency on Thursday.

"The roof of the correctional facility №57 was hit directly. A total of 675 square meters burned down, and a prisoner born in 1985 has been injured. A man, aged 57, died in the Nikitovsky district," Khramenkov said.

Two power lines were damaged in the shelling, he added.

Minsk agreements on Ukraine

Ceasefire is envisaged by the Minsk agreements on Ukraine. The Minsk accords 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 Minsk accords also envisage 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 Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
