DPR defense ministry said on Thursday that 14 violations of ceasefire by Ukrainian forces were registered over the last 24 hours.
At the meeting of the Contact Group on January 13 the sides supported the initiative of Russia’s envoy Boris Gryzlov on ensuring complete ceasefire on the territory of Donbass.
