LUGANSK, March 17 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Lugansk People’s Republic People’s Militia air defence and radioelectronic warfare units downed the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which Kiev forces had used to adjust fire at the Donetskiy township, LPR People’s Militia press service reported.
“The enemy used a Mavic Pro-type drone for fire adjustment,” the report said. “Thanks to coordinated actions by LPR militia air defence and a Triton M1 radio electronic system, the intruder was detected and force-landed.”
At present, People’s Militia specialists are examining the UAV flash drive data.
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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.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.
