Kiev military violates "spring ceasefire" 32 times, DPR says

The "spring ceasefire" came into force on March 8

DONETSK, March 13. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Armed Forces have violated the so-called "spring ceasefire" 32 times since it came into force on March 8, the mission of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) said in the documents submitted on Wednesday to the security subgroup of the Contact Group seeking peace for east Ukraine.

"Since the spring ceasefire came into force on March 8, at 01:01am Moscow Time, 32 ceasefire violations have been recorded, including five [violations] from heavy weapons. One facility has been damaged," the report says.

On March 7, the Contact Group’s security subgroup agreed at talks in Minsk to declare a new ceasefire in Donbass starting on March 8. However, the Ukrainian military violated the ceasefire just five minutes after it had taken effect.
