MINSK (Sputnik) – He pointed out that the intensity of shelling in Donbass significantly decreased within the last two weeks, which improved the situation for civilians.
Sajdik added that the next session of the Contact Group would be held in Minsk on March 1.
In February 2015, Kiev forces and Donbass independence supporters signed a peace agreement in the Belarusian capital of Minsk. The deal stipulates a full ceasefire, weapons withdrawal from the line of contact in Donbass, as well as constitutional reforms that would give a special status to the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. Despite the agreement, the ceasefire regime is regularly violated, with both sides accusing each other of multiple breaches, undermining the terms of the accord.
