Donetsk, Oct 7 - DAN. Ukrainian armed formations on Thursday evening fired mortars at the Alexandrovka settlement area in western Donetsk, the Donetsk People’s Republic Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) reported.

The strike was delivered at 17:15 from the Ukraine-controlled Maryinka settlement area. The enemy used 82mm mortars expending 12 rounds overall. No casualties or damage were reported.

“The Ukrainian representatives in the JCCC are ignoring the request to use the coordination mechanism for establishing a ceasefire,” the DPR Office said.

The package of tighter ceasefire control measures has been in effect in Donbass since July 27, 2020. The document bans the use of any weapons, deployment of heavy armaments in and around settlements, engineer works and unmanned aerial vehicle flights.*jk
