Ceasefire opens path for full settlement of conflict in Donbas – U.S. Embassy

The United States strongly supports Ukraine's efforts to establish a comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas.

“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 on July 27,” the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine posted on Twitter.

The embassy notes that 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."

As Ukrinform reported, during a meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) in Minsk on July 22, the parties agreed on a complete and comprehensive ceasefire on the contact line in Donbas from July 27.
