LUGANSK, May 7 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Kiev forces on Thursday fired at a coal delivery truck in the Golubovskoye settlement wounding three residents, the Lugansk People’s Republic Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination reported.

Ukrainian army units in the Orekhovo area fired an anti-tank guided missile at Golubovskoye at 11:35 on May 7, the report said.

“Three LPR civilians aged 84, 27 and 20 were wounded in Golubovskoye’s Shirokaya Street as a result of the Ukrainian attack on a coal delivery truck,” the JCCC said. “The victims were hospitalised with shrapnel wounds to Kirovsk Central Hospital; their condition is stable.”

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.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