Danilov hopes ceasefire in Donbas will be a step towards end of war

The ceasefire in Donbas has been in place since midnight July 27, 2020, and isolated cases of its violation are not systemic, according to the Main Situation Center at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.

“Unlike the previous “Christmas”, “harvest”, “school” and many other announced ceasefires, which lasted several days, today is the seventh day of the ceasefire without heavy weapons shots and combat losses,” the NSDC press service reported on August 3.

Commenting on the ceasefire in Donbas, NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov expressed hope that the agreements reached by the Trilateral Contact Group would be further carried out and that any attempts to discredit peace initiatives, including provocations along the contact line, would be repelled.

“We hope that the ceasefire will be a significant step towards the end of the war and the return of our territories,” he stated.

The collection, accumulation and processing of information on the situation in the JFO zone are provided by the COTA software and hardware complex, which allows for a comprehensive analysis in order to prepare and make decisions in the sphere of national security and defense. According to the COTA, before the ceasefire was announced, daily shelling reached 16-18 times, the vast majority of which were precision fire from heavy weapons – artillery, mortars, anti-tank missile systems, as well as unmanned aerial vehicles and sniper weapons. Weekly losses of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were 2-3 dead and 6-8 wounded. Occupational groups suffered similar losses.
