MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. A militia source has reported three cases of shelling of the militia positions of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) over the past 24 hours.

"The fire attack mounted from the area near Luganskoye urban-type settlement was directed at Kalinovka and Lozovoye villages, the Ukrainian military used armored personnel carriers," LuganskInformTsentr news agency quotes a source in the LPR people’s militia as saying.

According to the source, there are no casualties among militia fighters.

Members of the Contact Group on the settlement in eastern Ukraine reached an agreement on a full ceasefire in the Donbass region for the eighth time on April 29. Envoy of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Martin Sajdik called this agreement a very important step expressing hope that the truce will become permanent. However, the people’s militia and the Ukrainian army continue to accuse each other of violating ceasefire.
