Terrorists in the ATO zone in the Donbas do not observe ceasefire. As of April 2, about 20 cases of shelling were reported, which later increased to 32.
“Since the beginning of the day at this time, the positions of Ukrainian troops in the ATO zone were fired 32 times. In most attacks, the enemy used small arms, large-caliber machine guns and grenade launchers of various systems. 6 times the militants used mortars of 120 and 82 mm caliber, and also fired from infantry fighting vehicles and anti-tank missile systems," spokesperson for the press center of the ATO headquarters Yaroslav Chepurny informed.
Thus, any ceasefire or truce in the ATO zone is out of question.
However, comparing to the previous days, the calibers and number of shelling have significantly decreased.
"This is not a ceasefire, but rather a reduction in the intensity of the shelling," Chepurny stated.
Earlier, at a meeting of the Tripartite Contact Group in Minsk on March 29, the parties agreed on the cease-fire to start April 1 in connection with the Easter holidays.
