On the previous day, July 28, Ukraine's armed forces were abiding by the ceasefire. However, enemy troops violated the ceasefire and shelled the Maryinka checkpoint, using a large-caliber machine gun, it said.

The latest, so-called "harvest" ceasefire, which was agreed by the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk on July 17, became effective at midnight on July 21.

It has become the 20th ceasefire agreed since the beginning of war in Donbas in 2014.
