Donetsk, Sep 2 - DAN. Ukrainian armed formations violated the ceasefire on the contact line with the Donetsk People’s Republic twice over the past 24 hours, the Donetsk People’s Republic Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) reported on Thursday.

“Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian armed formations expended 25 rounds of ammunition (the amount of expended ammunition of caliber up to 12.7mm is not added to overall daily statistics - eds Donetsk News Agency),” the report said.

Fire was delivered at the areas of the Vesyoloye village north of Donetsk and Sakhanka village in southern DPR. The enemy used RPG and AGS grenade launchers and small arms. No casualties or damage were immediately reported.

“The Ukrainian representatives at the JCCC ignored the DPR’s attempts to use the coordination mechanism in order to quickly establish a local ceasefire after each fact of truce violation,” the DPR Office said.

In the previous reporting period, Ukrainian army units opened fire at the DPR three times.

The package of tighter ceasefire control measures has been in effect in Donbass since July 27, 2020. The document bans the use of all weapons, deployment of hardware, special operations, engineer works and unmanned aerial vehicle flights.*jk
