“Over the past two weeks there has been an increasing number of ceasefire violations. The overall number of violations is increasing and the security situation in and around the disengagement areas is deteriorating”, –  Grau said.

According to her, at the moment, “the parties have not yet demonstrated their willingness to eliminate the recorded ceasefire violations.” Grau noted that amid the growing number of ceasefire violations, the participants of the TAG at the next meeting “have not yet come to a discussion of the mechanisms of coordination of the ceasefire, demining and disengagement of forces and means”.

An official representative of the People’s Militia of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic has reported on further ceasefire violations by the Ukrainian militants. Over the past 24 hours, there were five ceasefire violations by the militants.
