MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. The Ukrainian military on Saturday late afternoon and at night to Sunday launched on Gorlovka’s northern suburb and Donetsk’s west 186 mines and shells, including from heavy weapons, the defense bodies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) told the Donetsk News Agency on Sunday.
"The Ukrainian military shelled Zaitsevo and Trudovskiye from 19:30 through to 02:00, and they launched five shells of 152mm caliber, 56 mines of 120mm caliber, and 73 mines of 82mm caliber," the authorities said. "They also made 48 fire strikes from IFV."
Earlier, the republic’s defense ministry said over the past 24 hours the Ukrainian military almost 300 times shelled the republic’s territory close to the front line.
At a meeting of the Contact Group on settlement of the situation in Ukraine’s south east, on January 13, the parties agreed yet another ceasefire would begin on January 14, however the militia and the military continue accusing each other of truce violations.
A peace deal struck on February 12, 2015 in Minsk, Belarus, by the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France envisaged a ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and people’s militias starting from February 15, followed by withdrawal of heavy weapons from the line of military engagement and prisoner release. The package of measures envisages the pullback of all heavy weapons by both parties to locations equidistant from the disengagement line in order to create a security zone at least 50 kilometers wide for artillery systems with a caliber of 100 mm or more, a zone of security 70 kilometers wide for multiple rocket launchers and a zone 140 kilometers wide for multiple rocket launchers Tornado-S, Uragan and Smerch and the tactical rocket systems Tochka-U. The final document says that the Ukrainian troops are to be pulled back away from the current line of engagement and the militias of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions from the engagement line set by the Minsk Memorandum of September 19, 2014.
