The militants abided by the cease-fire in the Donbas conflict zone for 1,5 days. However, this afternoon the Russian-occupational forces broke it and used arms forbidden by the Minsk agreements, as Ukrainian Army HQ reports.

In Donetsk sector, the enemy attacked Ukrainian strongholds near Lebedynske from 82, 120-mm mortars.

The Ukrainian Army strictly follows the Minsk agreements and guarantees fulling all measures for a comprehensive cease-fire.

It’s worth pointing out that most probably the militants abided by the cease-fire only because U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker was scheduled to visit Donbas. The trip didn’t happen due to bad weather conditions.
