LUGANSK, June 13 (Lugansk Media Centre) - A house burnt down, a school and five houses and two shops were damaged as Kiev forces shelled Zolotoye-5, the Lugansk People’s Republic Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination reported.

“As a result of a ceasefire violation on June 13 in which Ukrainian armed formations deployed in the Zolotoye-4 (Rodina) settlement fired towards the LPR territory, a dwelling house burnt town and nine civil infrastructure facilities were damaged in the Zolotoye-5 (Mikhailovka) township," the report said.

A power transmission line was damaged, the JCCC added.

Fragments of ordnance and the nature of impacts showed that the strike had been delivered with infantry fighting vehicle (BMP-1) guns, automatic grenade launchers (AGS-17) and high calibre small arms.

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.
