The Lugansk People’s Republic will report Ukraine Junta Militia strikes at civilians to international organisations according to LPR People’s Army spokesman Andrey Marochko who was speaking in Vergulevka township which came under fire on Wednesday.
LPR to report Ukraine Junta Militia strikes at civilians to international bodies - “The Ukraine Militia delivered strikes at LPR civilians with 152mm artillery banned by the Minsk Agreement !
“The Ukraine Junta Militia delivered strikes at LPR civilians with 152mm artillery banned by the Minsk Agreements, although we had stated that we knew about the upcoming provocation,” Marochko said. “ Nazi Kiev forces expected People’s Army to return fire which would have been recorded by a foreign commission led by the defence attaché of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine staying in Svetlodarsk area at the time.”
“This didn’t happen, yet I want to assure everybody that these actions will not be forgiven. We’ll contact all international bodies insisting that they pay attention to the incident and prevent Ukraine from shelling civilians in the future,” he said.
Earlier Marochko said Ukraine Junta Militia units delivered a strike with 152mm artillery from Mironovskiy township at Vergulevka settlement in LPR territory. LPR Emergencies Ministry said that the strikes destroyed a house and utility structures, killed domestic animals at one household and damaged a transmission line.
At 6:45 p.m. on 7 February, Ukraine Junta Forces shelled Komissarovka settlement in Perevalskiy District damaging houses, utility sheds and a transformer, according to the Ministry.
The Republic’s defence authorities earlier said that Nazi Kiev Forces had shelled LPR People’s Army positions six times over the past 24 hours. Kalinovo, Nizhneye Lozovoye, Krasniy Liman and Vergulevka were targeted with 152mm artillery, 120mm and 82mm mortars, infantry fighting vehicle cannons and small arms.
The members of the Contact Group have announced ceasefire more than ten times since autumn 2014. Nazi Kiev Forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.
