Donetsk, Nov 13 – DAN. Ukrainian forces violated the ceasefire 42 times over the past 24 hours, damaging four households, DPR Operations Command said.

“Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian forces violated the ceasefire 42 times firing at 16 DPR townships areas,” a DPR Operations Command representative said.

The enemy used mortars, infantry fighting vehicle cannons, armored personnel carriers guns, grenade launchers and small arms.

Mortar rounds hit Dokuchaevsk cutting off power supply to some parts of the town.

The previous evening, Kiev forces targeted a southern Oktyabr township leaving it without power.

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
