Russia-Ukraine War: Ukraine on Friday reported a fresh attack on an eastern city from Russian forces hours after Moscow announced ceasefire, reported news agency AFP.  According to AFP, shelling took place in the frontline city of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine. 

As per a media report, a temporary ceasefire was announced between 9 am on Friday and 9 pm on Saturday by Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Orthodox Christmas. 

Just a day earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Moscow’s armed forces to observe a 36-hour ceasefire in Ukraine this weekend for the Russian Orthodox Christmas holiday, the first such sweeping truce move in the nearly 11-month-old war.

Putin did not appear to make his cease-fire order conditional on a Ukrainian agreement to follow suit, and it wasn’t clear whether hostilities would actually halt on the 1,100-kilometer (684-mile) front line. Ukrainian officials have previously dismissed Russian peace moves as playing for time to regroup their forces and prepare for additional attacks. READ MORE
