Ukrainian officers from the joint control center for ceasefire in Donbas accuse pro-Kremlin mercenaries of deliberate escalation of conflict in eastern Ukraine.

According to the officials, the illegal armed units of pro-Russian militants continue shelling positions of Ukraine’s Armed Forces and the civilian infrastructure along the division line, thus rudely violating Minsk agreements and the ceasefire, which was many times offered by parties to the Minsk trilateral group.
