Six passengers wounded as Ukrainian forces fire at bus in Golubovskoye - LPR Mission to JCCC

LUGANSK, June 7 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Six commuter bus passengers were wounded as Kiev forces fired mortars at the Golubovskoye settlement administered by the Kirovsk Town Council, the LPR Mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination said.

“At 10:30 on June 7, 2018, six commuter bus passengers were injured in the strike at the Pervomaiskaya Street area in the Golubovskoye settlement with 82mm mortars,” the report said.

The victims were rushed to the Kirov municipal hospital, the JCCC said.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.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