LUGANSK (Sputnik) – The shelling, which started on Friday morning, affected the town of Pervomaiske and a local village and injured one person, the ministry said as cited by the Lugansk Information Center late on Friday.
Fighting between Ukrainian forces and independence supporters in the country’s southeast started in April 2014, when Kiev launched a military operation in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions that were against the new coup-installed government.
Both Kiev and LPR and DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) have since been accusing each other of violating the terms of the agreement. Sporadic fighting has been reported in the southeast of Ukraine despite the Minsk ceasefire.
According to UN estimates, more than 6,800 people have been killed in eastern Ukraine since the beginning of the conflict in April 2014.
