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 towns of Krasnyi Luch and Rubezhnoye HIMARS multiple rocket launchers (six projectiles) and 155mm artillery (nine rounds),” the JCCC said.
In Rubezhnoye four civilians were killed. Krasnyi Luch three people were wounded, a hotel, seven houses, a market and a power line were damaged.
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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords. *s
