Over the past day, Ukrainian security forces violated the ceasefire five times in the zone of responsibility of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic, RIA Novosti reports.
“On February 20, 2020, five attacks were recorded by the armed formations of Ukraine,” a representative of the LPR told the agency.
As the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) of the ceasefire regime clarified, the Ukrainian army attacked the settlements of Lozovoye and Molodezhnoye controlled by the LPR. It is noted that the servicemen used 82 mm mortars, grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms.
At the moment, the information about the victims among the civilian population and the destruction is being clarified.
A day earlier, the LPR said that the Ukrainian security forces received a “secret order to shoot” after a meeting of the National Security Council of Ukraine.
