LUGANSK, April 15 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Kiev forces have shelled Zolotoye-5 injuring a child, the LPR Emergencies press-service said.

"As a result of Ukrainian shelling of Zolotoye-5, a 12-year-old girl was injured on the L.Chaykinoi street and taken to Pervomaisk city hospital with blast wound."

The Spring ceasefire, 23rd in the series of ceasefire recommitments, was agreed to by the security subgroup of the Contact Group and came in effect in Donbass on March 8, 2019 1:01 a.m. (GMT+3).

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.

To facilitate the work of the Contact Group, four working groups were set up under its aegis to deal with issues of security, politics, return of internally displaced people and refuges, as well as with social, humanitarian, economic and rehabilitation issues.
