LUGANSK, June 24 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Kiev forces deployed MLRS Grad to the Schastye power station, said LPR People's Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko.

“Four pieces of the MLRS Grad were positioned on the premises of the Schastye power station, three D-30 howitzers are placed at the city stadium. A tank and an Akatsia self-propelled artillery system is deployed to Katerinovka and positioned in the residential area,” he said.

“Some units relocate leaving their positions behind and move towards the frontline,” he said.

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