Over the past 24 hours, there have been no violations of the ceasefire recorded in Donbas, the press center of the headquarters of the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) reported on Facebook Wednesday, 24 January.
"For the first time in a long time, no violations of the ceasefire regime took place in the ATO zone. On January 23, no one fired at the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The units of the Ukrainian army strictly adhere to the Minsk agreements and ensure the implementation of all measures to maintain a sustainable ceasefire," the report says.
ATO HQ said that a complete ceasefire provides more opportunities for rebuilding destroyed infrastructure, re-establishing transport links and actively conducting demining operations.
Earlier, the first deputy head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission, Alexander Hug, said that the attempts to demine and withdraw weapons in Donbas have failed and said he believed that this may indicate a forthcoming escalation of the conflict.
