Donetsk, Apr 19 – DAN. Ukrainian armed formations shelled Yakovlevka on the outskirts of Donetsk on Monday evening, the DPR mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) said.

The shelling was reported at 5.55 p.m. originating from Ukraine-controlled Avdeyevka; the total of 12 rounds of 120 mm caliber were fired.

All the attempts to reinstall the ceasefire through the coordination mechanism failed as Ukrainian ignored the requests.

A shelling from Ukrainian positions has left eight transformer substations in north-western Gorlovka without power.

A residential house at 40 Ermolovoi street, Komarova township was damaged.

The Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire were signed at the Contact Group meeting on July 22 to reinforce and control the indefinite ceasefire in effect since July 21, 2019, the latest in the series of more than 20 reconfirmation and announcements of the “silence regime”. The package came into effect on July 27. *ot
