The Ukrainian side has grossly violated the declared truce, it lasted a little over two days, the DPR People’s Militia reports.

“This morning, the 54th brigade, opened small arms fire at Yakovlevka. It is noteworthy that the shooting was carried out with the use of silencers in order to disable the OSCE SMM from registering this incident as a ceasefire violation.

In addition, the Ukrainian war criminals who gave the order to open fire emphasized clearly that they care nothing for the instructions from their Supreme Commander-in-Chief V. Zelensky.

We demand that the Ukrainian side fulfill its commitments on the enhancement and control of the effective indefinite ceasefire regime, which are agreed and signed by the members of the Contact Group and validated by the corresponding order of the Ukrainian command,” the statement says.
