Ukrainian security forces fired again at the territory of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic, opening fire in the suburbs of Lugansk, the LPR mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire Regime (JCCC) said.
Earlier, the People's Militia of the LPR stated that the Ukrainian security forces had opened fire on two villages of the republic since the beginning of the day.
Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian forces have shelled LPR 29 times, including with the use of heavy weapons, the LPR mission to the JCCC noted.

He added that the Ukrainian army had used 122-millimeter artillery systems, large-caliber mortars and anti-tank guided missiles.
On Thursday, the situation deteriorated in the Donbass region as the Lugansk People's Republic militia accused the Ukrainian military of violating a ceasefire and loose mortar shelling.
The conflict in Donbass between Ukraine's government and the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk republics has been going on since 2014.
The Minsk agreements, designed to find a political resolution to the conflict, were negotiated by the leaders of France, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine — the Normandy group — in February 2015. The agreement has not been implemented so far and sporadic clashes still continue. Moscow has repeatedly stated that Kiev is not fulfilling the Minsk agreements and is delaying negotiations to resolve the conflict.
