LUGANSK, February 11 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Kiev forces have shelled a school in Zolotoye-5, the LPR mission to the JCCC said.

"As a result of shelling, recorded on February 11 at 4.20 a.m. and originating from Ukrainian armed forces positions, a school No.4 in Zolotoye-5 (Mikhailovka) was damaged."

The school came under 7.62mm arms fire, bullets of the rimmed rifle cartridge type 57-N-323S and rifle cartridge type 57-N-23 have been recovered from the site.

The JCCC said the LPR mission had carried out engineer reconnaissance on the 0.6 ha of the neighborhood territory to ensure civilian safety.

The members of the Contact Group have announced ceasefire more than 20 times since the autumn of 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.

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.
