Donetsk, Aug 13 – DAN. Ukrainian forces violated the ceasefire once in the past 24 hours, the DPR mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) said.

The township of Shakhta Gagarina on Gorlovka outskirts came under grenade launcher fire.

In the previous reporting period, four ceasefire violations by Ukraine were reported.

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

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
