LUGANSK, July 11. /TASS/. Kiev forces have shelled the territory of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) 27 times over the last 24 hours, including from weapons that should be withdrawn from the contact line in accordance with the Minsk Agreements, LPR people’s militia said on Monday.
LPR people’s militia told Lugansk Inform Center that no one was injured in shellings. According to LPR, Ukrainian forces opened fire at settlements of Kalinovo, Kalinovka, Sanzharovka, Lozovoye, Logvinovo, Zolotoye and Sokolniki. Kiev forces used tanks, mortars of 120mm and 82mm caliber, ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft twin-barreled autocannons, grenade launchers and small arms.
The participants of the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine agreed on observing ceasefire starting from April 30. However, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics (DPR and LPR) and Kiev forces continue accusing each other of violating the ceasefire regime in Donbass.
Ceasefire is envisaged by the Minsk accords signed on 12 February 2015, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko. The package of measures also envisages weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbass, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
