The fragile ceasefire is still preserved, but the number of shellings has begun to rise. IF yesterday only 9 shots from small arms were heard, then today it’s come to talking about mortar and artillery shelling.

Over the past 24 hours, the DPR’s territory was shelled 37 times. Infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers, and small arms were fired. Yesterday morning, the village of Sakhanka was shelled by mortars. Fortunately, there were no victims or destruction.

Around 8 at night, Dokuchaevsk came under shelling. 122 caliber artillery opened fire on the city’s outskirts. The city of Yasinovataya and Spartak village were shelled by mortars.

Over the night of September 4th-5th, the village of Trudovskie west of Donetsk was also fired at. Local residents, already having gotten used to silence, reacted surprised on social networks.
