Donetsk, Sep 29 – DAN. Ukrainian army units opened grenade launcher fire at the frontline Gorlovka on Tuesday morning, the Donetsk People’s Republic Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination reported.

“At 07:40, Ukrainian armed formations in the Shumy settlement area fired in the direction of the Shakhta 6/7 settlement in Gorlovka,” the report said. “Two underbarrel grenade launcher rounds were fired.”

On September 10, Kiev derailed the joint inspection with the DPR and the OSCE in Shumy, whose objective was to see the real situation concerning Ukrainian army engineer works in the district.  Donetsk repeatedly said that Ukrainian forces had constructed fortifications outside Gorlovka in violation of the additional ceasefire control measures, and that they advanced them to the Severskiy Donets – Donbass water duct arc planning to gain a foothold there.

The package of tighter ceasefire control measures came into force in Donbass on July 27, 2020. The document bans the use of any weapons, deployment of hardware, special operations, engineer works and unmanned aerial vehicles flights.*jk
