LUGANSK, December 3 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Ukrainian troops shelled the Stanitsa Luganskaya bridge damaging the wooden deck, the LPR mission to the JCCC told Lugansk Media Center.

"As the result of ceasefire violation recorded at 8.15 p.m. on December 2 coming from the Stanitsa Luganskaya direction, targeting LPR territory in the vicinity of the Stanitsa Luganskaya temporary checkpoint, disengagement zone No.1, with GP-25 grenade launcher, damage to the bridge's wooden ramp connecting the ruined bridge with the LPR checkpoint was recorded."

No casualties have been reported.

The LPR mission to the JCCC urged the OSCE SMM to give an appropriate estimation of the flagrant violation of the framework agreement on the disengagement of forces and hardware from September 21, 2016.

Currently there is only one official checkpoint at the line of contact in LPR area of responsibility in Donbass and it is accessible via the bridge in the vicinity of Stanitsa Luganskaya. Only pedestrian traffic is allowed across the river along a temporary wooden construction, as the bridge was blown up by Ukrainian forces in early 2015. LPR has been continuously proposing to upgrade it.
