Members of the Contact Group on the settlement in eastern Ukraine have said more than ten times since the autumn of 2014 that an agreement had been reached on the cessation of hostilities in the region. However, the ceasefire was disrupted on numerous occasions, with the parties to the conflict accusing each other of violating the truce.
At a meeting on March 29, the parties once again agreed on a ceasefire in the Donbass region as of April 1. However, LPR says the Ukrainian units observed the ceasefire for only about an hour.
