In connection with the forthcoming beginning of the school year, the Contact Group agreed on and supported the regime of a sustainable and comprehensive ceasefire on the line of contact between the parties in Donbass starting from 00:00 hours on August 25.
We hope that this truce will contribute to the stability of the region and will lead to the resolution of political issues.
The Donetsk People’s Republic, for its part, is ready to do whatever is necessary to comply with the agreements that have been adopted.
The children of Donbass, whatever side of the line of contact they live on, should be able to go to school in peace and quiet.
