MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces shelled the positions of the people’s militia of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) near the Krasny Liman settlement, LPR people’s militia headquarters deputy commander Igor Yaschenko said on Tuesday.
"Ukrainian Armed Forces opened fire from mortars of 82mm caliber at our positions located near the T-shaped crossroads to the north of the Krasny Liman settlement. Eight mines were fired at the positions," Yaschenko told Luhansk Inform Center adding that no one was injured in the incident.
It was earlier reported that Kiev forces recently resumed daily shellings of people’s militia positions in LPR. On December 6 Ukrainian forces shelled settlements in the Slavyanoserbsky district, on December 7 - a checkpoint near the Mikhaylovka settlement near Pervomaisk, on December 13 - the settlements of Kalinovka near Debaltsevo.
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 DPR defense ministry registered the growing number of shellings near Gorlovka and in Donetsk’s northern and western outskirts. Deputy Chief Monitor of the Special Monitoring Mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Alexander Hug said that Donetsk’s outskirts and Gorlovka remain the "hot spots" on the contact line in Donbas.
