Ukrainian Command Reports Decrease in Cease-Fire Violations

KIEV – The Ukrainian military command on Wednesday reported a significant decline in cease-fire violations in the eastern region of the country but said the truce was not being entirely honored by the pro-Russian separatist militias.

Ukrainian forces spokesman Anatoly Stelmakh said that for the second consecutive day there was a “significant decrease” in the number of militia attacks against troop positions and in the cities.

At the same time, he reported that in the 24 hours ending at 0500 GMT on Wednesday, the pro-Russians fired artillery and mortars on 15 occasions, and in four others it used light arms and hand grenades.

Stelmakh said that the Ukrainian troops on Tuesday repulsed an attack by the separatists on Shirokino, a town in the south of the breakaway Donetsk region.

He stressed that despite the provocations, the Ukrainians maintained their positions and respected the cease-fire along the entire separation of forces line.

The separatists announced on Tuesday the start of the withdrawal of their heavy weapons from the front line in compliance with the second of the 13 points of the peace accord signed in the Belarus capital of Minsk.

Kiev authorities dismissed the announcement, claiming the movement of heavy weapons was actually a regrouping of the separatist forces.
