Ceasefire broken?

 

More, War in the Donbas

On the night of 19th of March Russian terrorist forces have blatantly broken the ceasefire agreements signed by the sides of the conflict, and shelled Ukrainian positions with Grad systems – mobile truck-mounted multiple rocket launching devices. Such war machines, according to the Minsk agreements were supposed to be withdrawn by both sides in 25 kilometer ratio from the front line, yet again terrorists have attacked Ukraine, neglecting the ceasefire that has been achieved earlier. This wasn’t the only armed provocation against the Ukrainian army, as multiple rocket launcher attacks have been noticed from both Donetsk and Luhansk directions. Around 21:45 terrorists have attacked a Ukrainian road block with hand-held 120-mm rocket launchers. Multiple firefights took place near Mariupol with the use of handguns and small arms. As a whole, the Ukrainian command had reported 5 cases of ceasefire breaking on the side of Russian forces since midnight of 19th of March till 7 AM of the 20th.
