Kiev forces have fired some 9,600 rounds of ammunition at the Lugansk People’s Republic since the contact line escalation on February 17, the LPR Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) reported.

“The enemy expended 9,616 rounds of ammunition overall, including eight Tochka-U missiles and 1,795 BM-21 “Grad,” BM-27 “Uragan” and BM-30 “Smerch” multiple rocket launcher rounds,” the report said.

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regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords.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
