The reluctance on the part of the Ukrainian delegates to discuss issues related to detailing measures to control and strengthen the ceasefire regime is reflected in the actions of the armed formations of Ukraine.

According to the DPR JCCC (https://t.me/DNR_SCKK/4646), on the night of January 21-22, as a result of the use of prohibited types of weapons on the southern borders, a soldier of the DPR People's Militia was killed, another soldier was injured. The shelling of the south of the Republic continued in the morning with the use of small arms and grenade launchers.

We express our condolences to the family of our soldier, who died from the treacherous shelling, and we also hope for a speedy recovery of the wounded defender of the Republic.

Ukraine is increasingly demonstrating its unwillingness to settle the conflict peacefully. This behavior only leads to an aggravation of the situation, escalation and casualties. We demand an end to the shelling and compliance with the agreements signed by the Ukrainian negotiators.
