MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. The Ukrainian army has shelled the positions of militia fighters in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) seven times over the past twenty-four hours, the LPR Defense Ministry said on Sunday.
"The positions near the village of Kalinovka were shelled five times from the urban settlement of Luganskoye. The fire was delivered from infantry fighting vehicles, mounted anti-tank and automatic grenade launchers and small arms," the news agency LuganskInformCenter quoted the LPR Defense Ministry as saying.
The Ukrainian military also opened fire twice on the area of the town of Pervomaisk from grenade launchers and a large-caliber machine-gun, the LPR Defense Ministry said.
A meeting of the Contact Group on the settlement of the crisis in east Ukraine agreed on January 13 to introduce a ceasefire regime from 00:00 Moscow time on January 14. However, the Donetsk and Lugansk militia and the Ukrainian army continue accusing each other of breaching the truce.
