LUGANSK, November 9 (Lugansk Media Centre) – An LPR defender has been killed in Ukrainian attack on Nizhneye Lozovoye, said LPR People's Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko.

The enemy used an SPG recoilless anti-tank gun.

"Unfortunately, there was a victim. An LPR People's Militia service member dies in the attack."

Filiponenko extended condolences to the family of the killed soldier.

The members of the Contact Group have announced ceasefire for more than twenty times since autumn 2014. Kiev forces regularly violate the truce opening fire with heavy artillery, mortars and tank guns, which should have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk Agreements.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 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.
