MOSCOW, September 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces have violated the ceasefire regime ten times over the past 24 hours by shelling militia positions in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic, the republic’s defense ministry said on Wednesday.
"The ceasefire regime is not observed by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Ten ceasefire regime violations have been registered between 6.00 a.m. on September 15 and 6.00 a.m. on September 16," the local militias told the LuhanskInformCenter.
The shelling hit the villages of Kalinovka, Lozovoye and Luganskoye. The forces used small arms, heavy-caliber machine guns, an automatic grenade launcher, an infantry fighting vehicles and a tank.
"There are no casualties among the civilians and troops," the militias said.
The Contact Group on resolving the crisis in Donbass agreed at the meeting in Minsk, Belarus, in late August to ensure ceasefire starting from September 1. Over the past few days, only sporadic violations of the "silence regime" have been reported.
