LUGANSK, June 19 (Lugansk Media Centre) – The Lugansk People’s Republic representatives at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) recorded the aftermath of the Ukrainian army strike at the Golubovskoye settlement.

A house at 16 Volgogradskaya street was hit, the explosion shattered its windows.

The examination performed at the scene revealed that a 30 mm 2A42 cannon (usually mounted on a BMP-2 type IFV) with armour-piercing tracer ammunition was used.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.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.
