The conflict in Ukraine’s eastern regions escalated in mid-April when Kiev launched a military operation against Donbas independence supporters.

The conflicting sides reached a ceasefire agreement at a meeting of the trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine on September 5 in Minsk and adopted a memorandum specifying the implementation of the ceasefire at another Contact Group meeting on September 19.

Both sides have subsequently accused each other of violating the truce. Violations of the ceasefire have also been reported by the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine. According to a recent UN report, more than 700 people have been killed in eastern Ukraine since the signing of the ceasefire agreement.
