The expectations of the contact group on the settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine were not fulfilled again
Just three days ago in Minsk, the head of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, assured the leaders of Russia, France, Germany and the OSCE special representative that an unlimited ceasefire will be announced from August 25. The shelling will cease.
However, on Friday morning, it proved that either the Ukrainian leader does not control what is happening in his own state, or does not keep his word.
The Ministry of Defense of the self-proclaimed DPR reported that at seven in the morning, shells fired from grenade cup discharges and small arms arrived from the positions of the Donbass-Ukraine national battleship in Marinka. The wound was received by 61-year-old local resident. He was taken to the hospital.
Also, the Donetsk security forces said that after midnight on 25 August the territory of Donbass was repeatedly shelled. The Ukrainian military used large-caliber and small arms.
Also, violations of agreements on armistice were reported in Lugansk. After midnight on 25 August, 10 facts of shelling were recorded. The APU used shells 152 mm, 120 mm, 82 mm, anti-tank complexes and other large-caliber weapons.
The statistics of the «ceasefire» announced since 2014 are as follows. About them it was declared more than ten times. However, each time the Donbass was bombarded immediately after the onset of the checkpoint.
