LUGANSK, September 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces are violating ceasefire near Stanitsa Luganskaya, a key condition for implementing the recently reached agreement on disengaging forces, a spokesman for militias in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Andrei Marochko, said.
The spokesman said the Kiev forces conducted another shelling of the territory this night. "The positions of people’s militia at a roadblock near the bridge close to Stanitsa Luganskaya came under fire," Marochko was quoted by the LuganskInformCenter as saying.
The shellings were carried out from infantry combat vehicle guns, an under-barrel grenade and a large-caliber machine gun, he said.
The area is under control of representatives of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission and officers of the Joint Center for Ceasefire Control and Coordination. "Here the disengagement of sides will take place. The people’s militia implements the agreements and does not return fire, but the Ukrainian armed forces are not committed to the deal," he stressed.
The participants of the Contact Group on settlement in eastern Ukraine at the meeting in Minsk, Belarus, on August 26 declared an indefinite ceasefire in Donbass starting from September 1.
