MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. Kiev troops have opened fire on the militia positions of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic in a village near Pervomaysk, the deputy chief of staff of the LPR militia corps said on Monday.
"Ukraine’s Armed Forces opened fire on our positions near the Kalinovka village from the side of Luganskoye village. The Kiev forces have fired a total of 15 shells from infantry fighting vehicle-2," Igor Yaschenko said.
No casualties have been reported in the shelling that occurred on Sunday, he said.
Kiev troops have recently resumed daily shellings of the LPR militia positions, according to reports. On December 6, they shelled the villages in the Slavyanoserbsky district, and on December 7 the shelling of a roadblock near the Mikhailovka village occurred.
Under the Minsk peace agreements, a complete ceasefire was declared on the contact line in Donbas from September 1. However, the Ukrainian military have systematically violated the truce. Kiev later said that its forces were ready to honor the ceasefire from November 25, but the shellings continued.
