KIEV, September 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The recently declared ceasefire regime in the embattled southeastern territories of Ukraine is observed and no shootouts were registered, Andrei Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, said on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, observers from the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine reported a number of episodes of the violation of the ceasefire regime in the southeast of Ukraine, however, they assessed the general situation as calm.
The trilateral Contact Group on the resolution of the Ukrainian conflict, comprising Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) agreed in Minsk on September 5 on cessation of fire in Ukraine’s embattled southeast.
The ceasefire agreement came into force at 6:00 p.m. local time (15:00 UTC) on Friday, September 5.
The Contact Group’s meeting came two days after Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested his seven-point plan to settle the crisis in Ukraine after a phone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko.
Fierce clashes between troops loyal to Kiev and local militias in the southeastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics left thousands killed, inflicted massive destruction and forced hundreds of thousands to flee Ukraine’s southeast.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said on Monday that according to latest UN estimations at least 3,000 people were killed since the conflict erupted in mid-April.
