MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have violated ceasefire regime 12 times on the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) over the last 24 hours, DPR defense ministry told Donetsk News Agency on Thursday.
"The situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic still remained tense over the last 24 hours," the DPR defense ministry said.
Ukrainian forces opened fire from mortars at the Donetsk airport and Spartak settlement in the Yasinovatsky district. Kiev forces fired more than 30 mines from their positions in Opytnoye and Avdeyevka.
At the meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk on August 26, the participants confirmed their plans to ensure ceasefire in Donbass from September 1. Over the last weeks, only few violations of ceasefire regime were registered in Donbas.
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 envisage ceasefire, weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbass, 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.
