LUGANSK, September 9 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Children found boxes of explosives and ammunition left behind in an abandoned house by Kiev forces, Lugansk People’s Republic People’s Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko said at a press briefing at the Lugansk Media Centre.

 “The Ukrainian armed formations’ illegal activity continues to pose a threat to the civilian population,” Filiponenko said. “Children found boxes of explosive hazards on the premises of an abandoned house in Troitskoye. Police who arrived at the scene retrieved 20 kilogrammes of plastic explosive, 30 clips of 5.45 ammunition rounds, 400 7.62mm rounds and 60 VOG-25 grenades. Also, three F-1 grenades used as booby traps were found and defused."

The ammunition and explosives belong to the Ukrainian army 30th Separate Mechanised Brigade 3rd Mechanised Company, he added.

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.
