Kiev forces shell LPR twice over 24 hours


Kiev forces have shelled the territory in the responsibility zone of the Lugansk People’s Republic twice over the past 24 hours, the LPR Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) reported.

“Ukrainian armed formations fired 15 missiles at the settlements of Pervomaisk and Stakhanov using US-made M142 high mobility artillery rocket systems,” the JCCC said. “The shelling ruined a building of the Pervomaiskugol colliery in Pervormaisk and damaged five apartment houses, a Pension Fund office, a culture and leisure centre, a children’s sports school and a shop.”

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014.  The Donbass peace talks participants 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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords. *i*s
