On the previous day, Kiev forces opened fire on Yakovlevka and Yasinovataya, the shelling lasted for three hours.

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
