In the previous reporting period, Ukrainian army units violated the ceasefire four times. No ceasefire violations were recorded on the contact line between the Lugansk People’s Republic and Ukraine in the past 24 hours.

The package of tighter ceasefire control measures has been formally in effect in Donbass since July 27, 2020.

Tensions in Donbass mounted after the New Year and Christmas holidays. *jk
