MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Around 30 civilian facilities have been damaged in the night shellings by Ukrainian forces in the Primorskoye settlement located around 27 kilometers from Mariupol, head of local administration Oleg Morgun told Donetsk News Agency on Thursday.

"Twenty-eight buildings were damaged, 16 of them significantly, and one house burned down," the administration head said adding that Ukrainian forces presumably fired from self-propelled guns of 152mm caliber.

Weaponry withdrawal

On July 18, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics (DPR and LPR) announced their plans to unilaterally withdraw heavy weaponry from the contact line. Weaponry withdrawal is envisaged by the Minsk agreements on the settlement in Ukraine signed on February 12 by Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine in the Belarusian capital.

DPR announced at the end of July that it completed the withdrawal of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line, leaving tanks only in "hot spots" to the north of Donetsk and in Debaltsevo. LPR also completed the withdrawal of weaponry from the contact line, leaving tanks and armored vehicles only on positions near the Schastye settlement.

On July 21, the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement reached an agreement on gradual withdrawal of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber by both sides.
