Donetsk, Aug 30 – DAN. DPR serviceman has been killed today in the vicinity of Yasinovataya as the result of Kiev's shelling, DPR Operations Command said.

"Today at 2.25 p.m. as the result of another 82mm mortar, recoiless anti-tank gun SPG-9 and small arms shelling from the positions of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian army, a 29-year-old DPR serviceman was killed."

DPR armed forces are still committed to the 'school ceasefire' as it was agreed by the Contact Group, and do not open retaliatory fire.

The ‘school ceasefire’ has been agreed to by the sides as the new academic year is to begin in Donbass on September 1. It came into force at midnight August 25. It hasn’t proved to be durable, thought in the first hours the security situation along the contact line stabilized.

According to DAN information, a comprehensive ceasefire has been announced in Donbass more than 16 times, excluding local silence regime announcements and agreements to facilitate repairs at strategic objects. At best, they have contributed to a short-time stabilization. *ot
