The unlimited ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, agreed by the Trilateral Contact Group and in force since July 21, 2019, continues to be widely respected.

The Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), Ambassador Martin Sajdik, said this in a press statement following a video conference of the TCG held at the initiative of the Ukrainian side on Thursday evening.

"The unlimited ceasefire, agreed by the Trilateral Contact Group and in force since 21 July 2019, continues to be widely respected. The average number of ceasefire violations remains significantly lower compared to the period before the ceasefire took effect," Sajdik said.

The ambassador thanked everyone involved for their efforts in this regard. "At the same time, I call upon the sides to undertake everything necessary for ensuring a continued unlimited, sustainable and comprehensive ceasefire," he noted.

"This is of particular importance in view of the upcoming new school year. Children have a right to a safe way to school as well as a calm and secure environment for studying,” Sajdik stressed.
