Ceasefire efforts broken up in Ukraine
The Russian representative of the Joint Center on fire control and ceasefire coordination process said that the Ukrainian authorities were given the plan for withdrawal of heavy artillery of Ukrainian Army and rebels' forces from the contact line a few days ago. This very plan was agreed before by the leaders of Donetsk People Republic and Lugansk People Republic.
The Russian representative stressed that instead of withdrawing the forces to security distance "we see in effect that the Ukrainian forces made an attempt to attack the rebels' positions which had led to new numerous victims of the civilians in Donetsk and Gorlovka."
Moreover the official said that all these hostility actions violated the Minsk Agreements and were organized by organic units of Ukrainian forces that attacked the buildings with civilians.
