Donetsk, Nov 6 – DAN. Ukrainian forces violated the ceasefire 51 times over the past 24 hours, firing 2,126 rounds at the DPR, the Republic’s representative at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) Ruslan Yakubov said.

“Over the last 24 hours, Ukrainian fired 2,126 rounds at the DPR,” he said.

Overall, 36 ceasefire violations have been recorded, the most intense shelling was launched on Donetsk axis, Verkhnekalmiusskaya water treatment plant.

Security situation has deteriorated the previous evening, as Kiev forces used heavy artillery to shell Dontesk and its neighborhood. A civilian has been injured, household and infrastructure damaged.

The JCCC system of processing violations data differs from that of the DPR Operations Command. The JCCC counts all rounds fired, while the Operations Command records only cases involving usage of heavy weapons. *ot
