Ukraine: no ceasefire in Debaltseve

In Ukraine, the ceasefire agreed in Minsk is still not respected, especially in the area around the strategic town of Debaltseve, near Donetsk. The rebels now control four-fifths of guarantee city.

In the city, both the rebels and the regular army of Ukraine maintain the heavy artillery, ransacking hopes for peace in Eastern Ukraine, after the agreement promoted by France and Germany.

In a statement, the Organization for security and cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said to have been in contact with all parties and welcomes the efforts of dialogue, but regrets that the fighting around Dabaltseve have no end in sight. Access to the town is forbidden to OSCE officials.
