Kiev forces violate ceasefire five times

Kiev forces shelled LPR People’s Militia positions five times over the past 24 hours, the Republic’s defence authorities said.

"In 24 hours Kiev forces shelled LPR People’s Militia positions five times using 120mm mortars, IFV cannons, small arms and firing over 50 rounds targeting People's Militia positions in vicinity of Kalinovka and Logvinovo from Luganskoye and Mironovskiy directions."

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 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.
