OSCE calls for ceasefire in Donbas

The Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), Ambassador Martin Sajdik called for a ceasefire in Donbas.

"Unfortunately, the results of the truce do not satisfy despite the fact that in the first days of the truce the number of ceasefire violations was reduced by 61% compared to the beginning of the month," he said, BelTA reported.

Sajdik called on the parties to the conflict to take urgent steps to ensure a ceasefire.

As a reminder, the security subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group agreed to introduce a ceasefire regime in Donbas from March 8 with no time limits.

At the same time, from the beginning of the day, Russian occupation forces launched two attacks on positions of Ukrainian troops in the area of Avdiivka and Marinka, wounding two servicemen.
