Kiev forces shelled LPR People’s Militia positions four times over the past 24 hours, the Republic’s defence authorities said.

Pervomaisk, Rayevka, Veselogorovka and Sokolniki areas were targeted with 82mm mortars, infantry fighting vehicle cannons, anti-aircraft guns (ZU-23-2), recoilless guns (SPG), automatic grenade launchers (AGS) and small arms.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.
