Chief of Ukraine's General Staff comments on enemy shelling amid truce in Donbas
Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak has commented on isolated enemy shelling amid the newly-agreed truce in Donbas.
"Isolated shelling is not systemic and reveals uncontrollable emotions or provocations at the lowest level," he said during a traditional conference call chaired by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, as reported by the president's press service.
Khomchak briefed the president on the situation in Donbas, saying no escalation or offensive actions were recorded in the Joint Forces Operation zone.
As UNIAN reported earlier, participants in the Trilateral Contact Group (Ukraine, Russia, OSCE) on the peace settlement in Donbas on July 22 agreed on a complete and comprehensive ceasefire along the contact line from 00:01 on Monday, July 27.
The new ceasefire regime began to operate in Donbas at 00:01 Kyiv time on July 27.
