MOSCOW, July 6. /TASS/. Ukrainian troops are shelling the settlement of Spartak near the Donetsk airport, a spokesman for the local administration said late on Monday.

"The shelling continues for more than half an hour. About ten artillery and five tank shells have hit the area," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.

Apart from that, sounds of heavy artillery shots are being heard from Donetsk’s Kievsky district, the agency said.

Minsk agreements

The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, 2015 after 14-hour negotiations between the leaders of Normandy Four (Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko) in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk. Concurrently, Minsk hosted a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement.

A 13-point Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements in particular included an agreement on cessation of fire from February 15, withdrawal of heavy armaments, as well as measures on long-term political settlement of the situation in Ukraine.

The ceasefire however has been repeatedly violated.
