The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has supported Ukraine in the provision of the ceasefire in Donbas, expressing hope that it would open the path to a comprehensive solution of the Russia-created conflict in eastern Ukraine. This is mentioned in the statement, released by the Embassy on Facebook.
"The United States strongly supports Ukraine in its determined efforts to fully implement a ceasefire. We are hopeful that reality on the ground will fully reflect the ceasefire called for in the Minsk agreements, as additional measures to strengthen the ceasefire agreed upon by the Trilateral Contact Group take effect July 27. Compliance with a ceasefire would bring respite to civilian communities affected by over six years of violence and open the path for a full and comprehensive settlement of the Russia-created conflict in eastern Ukraine," reads the statement.
A session of the Minsk trilateral contact group took place on July 22. The sides agreed on a full ceasefire in Donbas since 00.01 a.m. July 27.
