On March 8, the deal on the ceasefire regime has come into force in the Donbas conflict zone. The agreement has been reached previously by the subgroup on the security of the Contact Group on conflict settlement of eastern Ukraine, as TASS reports.

Despite the agreement and all the assuredness, the Ukrainian side seriously doubts that Russian occupants will abide by the deal.

“The most important: anyway, today all the parties have agreed that from midnight the ceasefire regime comes into force. However, in order to not hope in vain, till there are no guarantees from the Russian agreement and Vladimir Putin himself, unfortunately, it is unlikely for them to abide by the deal. They have the powers to do so”, - Yevhen Marchuk, Ukraine's Envoy in the Group, stated this during the Minsk agreement.
