There was no shelling in the Donbas region from midnight. Ukraine's Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak stated this on September 1.
According to him, as of 9:00 a.m. September 1 the militants haven't violated the ceasefire state.
"I receive information about the situation in the Eastern Ukraine every 15 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised when I got the information there were no attacks since midnight as of 9:00 a.m. September 1", he said.
The Minister stressed the situation was very tense during the last days.
It was reported there were 12 attacks over the previous 24 hours.
Recall that Trilateral Contact Group met in Minsk on August 26 regarding the Donbas conflict. The statement on the total ceasefire from September 1 was announced there. France and Germany also supported this idea.
