Donetsk, Sep 1 - DAN. Ukrainian army units violated the 'school ceasefire' 190 times over the past week firing 642 mortar and artiilery rounds, DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin said on Friday.

"Overall, 186 ceasefire violations by Ukrainian forces have been recorded,” Basurin said. “The enemy fired 642 artillery, tank guns and 120mm, 82mm mortar rounds.

The enemy targeted 22 frontline townships in DPR. Damage to households was reported.

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. *ot
