MOSCOW, January 3. /TASS/. The Ukrainian armed forces have shelled people’s militia positions in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) three times over the past 24 hours, a source in the LPR Defense Ministry informed the Luganskinformtsentr news agency on Tuesday.
"Kiev-controlled forces have shelled LPR people’s militia positions three times over the past 24 hours," the ministry said.
It also noted that the area close to the village of Kalinovka was shelled with 120mm and 82mm mortars from the Luganskoye populated locality area.
