Russian mercenaries violate ceasefire about 1,600 times since truce began – Nayev

Since the comprehensive ceasefire agreements entered into force on July 27, 2020, about 1,600 violations by the Russian occupation forces have been recorded. This year, more than 900 provocative attacks on Joint Forces positions have been reported.

Commander of the Ukrainian Joint Forces, Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev said this during the All-Ukrainian Forum “Ukraine 30. National Security” on May 12, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Despite repeated statements on the ceasefire, the enemy continues to violate the Minsk agreements in order to maintain tension on the contact line, control the situation in the JFO area, and inflict losses on the Joint Forces. In total, since the entry into force of the comprehensive ceasefire agreements, about 1,600 such violations by the enemy have been recorded," Nayev said.

As Ukrinform reported, on February 8, President Volodymyr Zelensky launched a large-scale public dialogue as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, which consists of 30 weekly forums on vital issues for the country. However, in March, the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30" took a break due to quarantine restrictions imposed in the city of Kyiv.
