Donetsk, Jun 22 - DAN. Kiev forces might reduce the intensity of strikes during crop harvesting, DPR top negotiator Denis Pushilin told reporters on Thursday.

“I think Ukraine will continue to shoot, but a lot less,” Pushilin said.

He said the ceasefire would contribute to quiet harvesting and prevent escalation.

The Contract Group agreed a ceasefire at the talks in Minsk on Wednesday. The so-called “harvest ceasefire" will be in effect from 24 June midnight through August 31 to allow crop harvesting.*jk
