Ukrainian troops continue to violate the truce, announced by President Poroshenko. A few hours are left before the truce expires, but the troops started large-scale combat actions in the area of the village of Nikolaevka, representatives of the militia of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk said.

"There are battles on the checkpoint in Nikolaevka. The Ukrainian army is on the offensive, trying to push us out from our positions. We fire back," Interfax reports with reference to headquarters of the local militia.

According to the militia, several people were killed today, June 30, as a result of the combat actions near the town of Slavyansk. "A shell hit a five-story building, a child was injured, a girl. We are informed that there were victims too, but we do not know how many people yet," a defender of Slavyansk told Interfax. 

The truce expired on June 27, but the president of Ukraine extended ceasefire for 72 more hours, before 11:00 p.m. MSK Monday.
