The Ukrainian party is not going to join the OSCE SMM calls on the need to provide reliable information on ceasefire regime violations.
The Armed formations of Ukraine declare alleged violations of the ceasefire by the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics in the statement of June 15, 2021.
This information does not correspond to reality. According to the data of the DPR representative office in the JCCC of June 15, 2021, no ceasefire violations were recorded from both the DPR People’s Militia and the AFU.
Such dissemination of fake information by the Ukrainian authorities is not a single case. Kiev uses the days of silence on the contact line to accuse the Republics of sabotaging the ceasefire, justifying its own further shelling of our territory.
In order to prevent the inaccurate information dissemination, we recommend the Ukrainian party to concentrate on agreeing an addendum to the measures to strengthen the ceasefire regime in terms of coordination mechanism.
