The Special Representative of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), Ambassador Heidi Grau announced that the security situation in Donbas continued to deteriorate over the recent months. This was reported by the OSCE press service.

“On the eve of the first anniversary of the agreement regarding additional measures to strengthen the ceasefire I would like to recall that, for several months, there has been considerable stabilization of the ceasefire along the line of contact as a result of this agreement. This is a proof that a comprehensive cessation of fire can be achieved provided that the sides demonstrate the necessary political will," she said.
