On Friday, the DPR’s representative office in the SCCC announced 11 violations of the ceasefire.
“Over the past day, the total number of violations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine amounted to 13 times”, – a representative of the department said.

In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LPR and DPR, which declared independence after the coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN data, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict.
The issue of resolving the situation in the Donbass is discussed, in particular, during meetings of the contact group in Minsk, which since September 2014 has already adopted three documents regulating steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, even after armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict, skirmishes continue.US Congressmen send requests to 50 countries to support Taiwan’s participation in WHO session
