LUGANSK, June 19 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Ukrainian shellfire on Berezovskoye has left a civilian injured on Friday, the LPR Mission to the JCCC said.

"AT 3.20 p.m. as a result of ceasefire violation by Ukrainian forces from the direction of Orekhovo targeting Berezovskoye with IVF canon, a civilian man, born in 1982, residing in the Kamyshevakha has been injured."

He has been hospitalized to the Kirovsk Central Hospital with preliminary diagnosed shrapnel wounds to collum and thoracic spine.

Earlier on Friday a civilian was killed in Zolotoye-5 as Ukrainian forces shelled the area.

The members of the Contact Group have announced ceasefire more than 20 times since the autumn of 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.

The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements was adopted by the Contact Group on Ukraine on February 12, 2015 and supported by member states of the Normandy Four (Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France). The UN Security Council approved the document by Resolution 2202 and called upon all the sides to ensure full implementation of the Package of Measures.

The document provides for comprehensive ceasefire, withdrawal of all heavy weapons from the contact line, starting a dialog on reconstruction of social and economic ties between Kiev and Donbass. It also envisages carrying out constitutional reform in Ukraine providing for decentralization and adopting permanent legislation on a special status of certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
