MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. No violations of ceasefire were registered in Donetsk and along the contact line in Donbas last night, Donetsk News Agency reported on Friday.
"Everything is alright, the night was calm," head of the Petrovsky district Maxim Zhukovsky told Donetsk News Agency.
Administrations of Kirovsky, Kuybyshevsky and Kievsky districts also confirmed that no violations of ceasefire were registered overnight.
"Everything was calm," Makeyevka Mayor Laris Tolstykina said.
The information was also confirmed by heads of Yasinovataya, Gorlovka, Novoazovsky, Telmanovsky and Starobeshevsky districts.
"Everything is calm, no one is complaining, all schools are working, everything is good," administration head of Novoazovsky district Oleg Morgun said.
At the meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk on August 26, the participants confirmed their plans to ensure ceasefire in Donbas from September 1. Over the last weeks, only few violations of ceasefire regime were registered in Donbass. Observing ceasefire by both sides is one of the main conditions for completing withdrawal of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line in Donbass.
The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
The Minsk accords envisage ceasefire, weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbas, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
