DONETSK, September 12. /TASS/. A total of 108 episodes of shelling by Ukrainian troops were reported in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the past day, a spokesman for the DPR operations command said on Monday.
"During the past day, Ukrainian troops violated the ceasefire regime 108 times. In all, 58 mines of 120mm and 82mm caliber were fired at DPR settlements," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
According to the DPR defense ministry, shelling was conducted at the villages of Vasilyevka and Spartak near Donetsk, the city’s western suburbs, the city of Dokuchayevsk and the settlements of Sakhanka and Linskoye in the DPR’s southern areas.
The Package of Measures to fulfil the September 2014 Minsk agreements, known as Minsk-2, that was signed in Minsk on February 12, 2015, envisaged a ceasefire regime between Ukrainian government forces and people’s militias in the self-proclaimed republics in Donetsk and Lugansk (DPR and LPR) starting from February 15, 2015 and a subsequent withdrawal of heavy weapons from the line of engagement. The deal also laid out a roadmap for a lasting settlement in Ukraine, including local elections and constitutional reform to give more autonomy to the war-torn eastern regions.
On August 26, the parties to the Contact Group for settling the armed civil conflict in eastern Ukraine made a yet another, ninth, attempt to attain ceasefire. The agreement they reached suggests the ceasefire terms should take effect as of September 1.
