We recall, starting midnight on Dec. 23, a new cease-fire started working in Donbas conflict zone. It was agreed upon during the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk on December 20th.

It is worth pointing out that the last time the TCG agreed to a cease-fire was at the end of this August when the school year was about to start. The militants of the “LDPR” broke it in the first few hours.
