ATO headquarters: ceasefire violated 4 times today
Russian-backed illegal armed forces violated the truce in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, four times on September 1 since midnight and up to 18:00 the Kyiv time, according to the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO).
However, it is reported that those violations indicate random and non-persistent nature of attacks on the positions of the Ukrainian military.
"At about 08:00, militants used an 82mm-caliber mortar to shell a stronghold of Ukrainian troops in the town of Schastia in Luhansk region. At 15:00 militants fired our positions in Maryinka not far from Donetsk. At 17:30 the Ukrainian position located to the south of Avdiyivka was attacked with a grenade launcher and small arms," according to the report.
In Artemivsk direction, militants opened fire from small arms and grenade launcher on the positions of Ukrainian troops near the village of Sanzharivka at about 15:00.
