Donetsk, May 7 – DAN. Ukrainian forces violated the ceasefire eight times over the past 24 hours, the DPR mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) said.

“Over the past 24 hours, the number of registered violations was eight, the number of rounds fired was 107″.

Six townships were targeted with 120 mm and 82 mm mortars, IFVs, APCs, grenade launchers and small arms.

All the attempts to reinstall the ceasefire through the coordination mechanism failed as Ukrainian ignored the requests.

On Thursday, children came under fire in western Donetsk. The youngsters were saved by their neighbours, while three houses, a gas pipe and a vehicle sustained damage.

The Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire were signed at the Contact Group meeting on July 22 to reinforce and control the indefinite ceasefire in effect since July 21, 2019, the latest in the series of more than 20 reconfirmation and announcements of the “silence regime”. The package came into effect on July 27. *ot
