The press service of the President of Ukraine said that Petro Poroshenko ordered the Chief of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to cease fire starting from 18:00 local time (19:00 MSK), on September 5.

"Based on the appeal from Russian President Vladimir Putin to the leaders of illegal armed formations in the Donbass to cease fire, on the base of the protocol signed at the meeting of the trilateral contact group to implement the peace plan of the President of Ukraine, I herewith order the Chief of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to cease fire starting from 18:00 on September 5," said Poroshenko.

Poroshenko also instructed the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the OSCE to ensure effective international control over the observance of ceasefire regime which should be bilateral.

The president also expects that these agreements, including ceasefire agreement and the release of hostages, will be observed strictly.

The Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk, Alexander Zakharchenko, also ordered militia forces to cease fire. "The order to cease fire from 18:00 has been given to all militia units,"said Deputy Prime Minister of the republic Andrei Purgin in Minsk on Friday.

At the same time, spokespeople for the Defense Ministry of the Donetsk Republic say that the Ukrainian troops continue combat actions in the Donbass region. "Forces of the enemy are shelling the outskirts of the city of Mariupol," Interfax reports with reference of a representative of the Donetsk Republic.
