We applied the four-dimensional Langevin approach to the description of fission of 235U by neutrons and calculated the dependence of the excitation energy of fission fragments on their mass number. For this we have fitted the compact just-before-scission configuration obtained by the Langevin calculations by the two separated fragments and calculated the intrinsic excitation and the deformation energy of each fragment accurately taking into account the shell and pairing effects and their dependence on the temperature and mass of the fragments. For the sharing of energy between the fission fragments we have used the simplest and most reliable assumption - the temperature of each fragment immediately after the neck rupture is the same as the temperature of mother nucleus just before scission. The calculated excitation energy of fission fragments clearly demonstrates the saw-tooth structure in the dependence on fragment mass number.
