MOSCOW, February 7. /TASS/. Monitors of OSCE, the Joint Coordination Center for Ceasefire Monitoring (JCCCM) and the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) inspected the Trudovskiye settlement in western Donetsk, where a local citizen was killed in the shelling delivered by pro-Kiev military, the Donetsk News Agency reported on Sunday referring to a source at the republic’s defense authorities.
"OSCE, JCCCM and the DPR’s defense ministry have inspected the place where a man died in the Trudovskiye settlement," the source said. "At the place, where he got injured, remain blood traces as well as traces from many mine fragments near houses."
The source said, the man, born in 1962, died of a 82mm mine, which was fired from positions of the Ukrainian military near the Maryinka town.
On Saturday, a civilian in the Trudovskiye settlement died of injuries from a shelling, delivered from positions of pro-Kiev military.
Ukrainian troops have been engaged in fighting with local militias during Kiev’s punitive operation, underway since mid-April 2014, against the breakaway territories - the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics constituting parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.
The Package (Minsk-2) was signed on February 12, 2015 in the Belarusian capital Minsk by participants of the Contact Group on settlement in Donbass. The Package, earlier agreed with the leaders of the Normandy Four (Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine) envisioned an overwhelming cessation of fire and withdrawal of heavy armaments to create a security area in the region at least 50 kilometers wide.
In line with the agreement reached at talks in Minsk, from September 1, 2015 there should have been a complete cessation of fire at the disengagement line in Donbass. However, the Defense Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has registered an increased number of shelling instances over the past few months.
At the recent meeting of the Contact Group on January 13, the sides supported the initiative of Russia’s envoy Boris Gryzlov on ensuring complete ceasefire on the territory of Donbass. This is the seventh attempt to observe fully the ceasefire regime in Ukraine’s south-east. At the Contact Group’s meeting in Minsk, the parties expressed regret over continuing violations of the ceasefire regime in Donbass. OSCE Special Representative for Ukraine Martin Sajdik said that the sides discussed establishing a mechanism on preventing resumption of military actions in general.
