In a statement, issued by the OSCE overnight into Wednesday, Dacic called on “all actors in and around the Debaltseve area to establish a local temporary truce for a minimum of three days, taking immediate effect."
The truce would be facilitated and supported by the OSCE's Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine and allow for the urgent evacuation of civilians from the conflict zone, Dacic added.
The town of Debaltseve in Ukraine’s Donetsk region has been at the forefront of increased clashes between Kiev-led forces and local pro-independence militia in recent days.
Tensions have been on the rise in East Ukraine in the first weeks of 2015. On Tuesday, the United Nations' human rights chief said that 224 civilians had been killed in the conflict in three weeks leading up to February 1, while 545 had been wounded.
Since Kiev launched a military operation against independence supporters in eastern Ukraine in April, more than 5,300 people have been killed and 12,200 have been wounded, according to the latest UN estimates.
