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 twice at the settlements of Zolotoye-5 and Pervomaisk using BM-21 “Grad” multiple rocket launchers (ten rounds) and 120mm mortars (four rounds),” the report said.

Several houses were damaged in the shelling.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords.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