The Ukrainian side of the JCCC reports

The Joint Centre for Control and Coordination reports violations of the Minsk agreements by the Russian forces in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

On January 20 the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission observers recorded 101 military vehicles of the Russian forces on the temporarily occupied territories that are allocated in violation of the Minks agreements.

Work of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in the temporarily occupied territories was impeded multiple times by the Russian forces. During the last week in KORSUN, YASYNUVATA and BEZIMENNE the occupants blocked way for the patrols of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.

Violations by the occupants show military preparations to create preconditions for further tension escalation on the frontline and attempt to conceal their criminal activity from international observers.

The Ukrainian forces remain on their positions and adhere to the ceasefire regime commitments reached within the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group.

Defence borders of the Ukrainian forces remain unchanged.

The Joint Forces retain control over the situation in their operations area and continue accomplishing their combat missions of defeating and deterring the Russian armed aggression.      

Glory to Ukraine!
