School in Zolotoye-5 damaged by Ukrainian fire


The Zolotoye-5 school No.4 has sustained damage in a Ukrainian attack today, LPR People’s Militia spokesman Ivan Filiponenko said.
"Today, on the eve of the Contact Group's meeting, the gunmen of the 24th Ukrainian brigade opened fire on Zolotoye-5 from the direction of Zolotoye-4. As a result, school windows have been shattered."
"Only because of the early school vacations there were no children inside and no one has been hurt," he added.
Filiponenko called on international organizations to document the incident and make Ukrainian armed formations conform to the ceasefire.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. Conflict settlement relies on the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, signed on February 12, 2015 in the Belarussian capital by the Contact Group members and coordinated by the Normandy Four heads of states (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine). The document provides for ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons from the contact line. *t
