No casualties or damages have been reported.
At the meeting on January 13, the Contact Group on settling the crisis in Ukraine’s southeast backed the initiative of Russia’s envoy to the Minsk talks Boris Gryzlov on declaring ceasefire. This is the seventh attempt since autumn 2014 to fully observe the ceasefire in Donbas.
The "silence regime" was introduced from midnight on January 14. However, the Ukrainian forces and militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics continue accusing each other of violating the ceasefire.
