MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Kiev troops shelled militia positions in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic six times over the past 24 hours, including from mortars, a local militia member said on Wednesday.

Ukraine’s forces opened fire at militia positions near Krasny Liman village three times using 82-mm mortars and small arms. The shelling came from direction of the Trehizbenka village.

Three local villages - Kalinovka, Logvinovo and Zheltoye - came under fire from an infantry fighting vehicle and small arms. "There are no casualties," he said.

The ceasefire in the war-torn Donbass has been into force since January 14. However, Kiev forces and the self-proclaimed republics continue accusing each other for violating the "silence regime.".
