DONETSK, March 19. /TASS/. A civilian, living in Lozovoye (Donbass’ Yasinovataya region) received a bullet wound as the Ukrainian military opened fire on the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), spokesman of the republic’s command Eduard Basurin said on Sunday.
"A woman, born in 1950, received a bullet wound in her own yard," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him.
Earlier on Sunday, the republic’s authorities reported the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Saturday evening and Sunday morning shelled Yasinovataya, Zaitsevo north of Gorlovka, Luganskoye, Signalnoye and Elenovka. In blackout remain Luganskoye and Signalnoye, Elenovka and Naberezhnoye.
Since the autumn of 2014, members of the Contact Group on settling the situation in eastern Ukraine have announced ceasefires in Donbass more than ten times. However, the Ukrainian military have been repeatedly violating ceasefires, particularly using large caliber guns, mortars and tanks that should be withdrawn from the line of contact in accordance with the Minsk agreements.
At the recent meeting of the Contact Group, held on March 1, the parties agreed to resume the weapons withdrawal process on March 7. However, the Ukrainian military refused to begin withdrawal under pretext of insecurity in the region.
