DONETSK, March 5. /TASS/. A ceasefire has been established at the contact line in Donbass at the initiative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), Eduard Basurin, a spokesman for the DPR operations command, said on Sunday.
"The DPR and LPR came out with a joint initiative via the Joint Centre for Coordination and Control (JCCC) to establish ceasefire along the entire line of engagement from 11:00 on Sunday. By now, the ceasefire has been observed," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
Further development of the situation will depend on the actions of the Ukrainian side and its ability to ensure lasting ceasefire by both regular army units and radical groups of Ukrainian nationalists, Basurin said.
Since autumn 2014, the Contact Group on the settlement in Donbass has agreed more than ten ceasefires but none lasted for long, with the parties to the conflict accusing each other of breaking them down. The latest Contact Group meeting on March 1 yielded an agreement on the resumption of the process of weapons withdrawal from the contact line on March 7.
