For the first time in the last few weeks, the situation in the Donbas conflict was absolutely calm as the combined Russian-separatist forces didn't attack Ukrainian army positions and complied with the ceasefire, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) wrote on Facebook on Friday.

"From midnight to 06:00 on October 2, the Kremlin-backed mercenaries were not using weapons along the demarcation line," the report says.

According to the press center, the Ukrainian side hopes that the long-awaited ceasefire will allow implementing the next stage of the peace agreements on withdrawal of small-caliber weapons and will open more opportunities for the restoration of infrastructure of Donbas before the winter season.
