MOSCOW, February 19./TASS/. Combat operations in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have practically ended, republic’s defense ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin told a briefing on Thursday.
"On the whole, the situation along the contact line is gradually stabilizing," he said. "Units of DPR’s armed forces strictly abide by a ceasefire and don’t fall for sporadic provocations from Ukrainian troops," Basurin said.
Militias have liberated all settlements around the Debaltsevo pocket, he said.
They continued blocking isolated subversive groups of the enemy remaining on the outskirts of the town, Basurin added.
