Pro-Russian mercenaries have stepped up combat activity in Donbas twice over the past month. Andriy Lysenko, the Ukraine’s Defense Ministry spokesman, said this at the Wednesday briefing.

‘Having analyzed the enemy activity in October, we found out that the activity grew almost twice – compared with that of September. In October, the enemy violated the ceasefire 1,322 times,’ Lysenko said.

As 12 International reported, the framework agreement on disengagement of forces in Donbas was signed in Minsk in September. The document puts OSCE in charge of constant monitoring of the disengagement process. Three safety zones were defined in Zolote, Petrivske and Stanystia Luhanska. However, the disengagement process stalled after a brief ceasefire in early September, as militants resumed attacks on Ukrainian positions and residential areas.
