Russia must fulfill its commitments on ceasefire in Donbas – British ambassador

British Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons has said she hopes that Russia will fulfill the agreements on a full ceasefire in Donbas.

“Good to see Trilateral Contact Group agreement on additional ceasefire measures. I really hope these are implemented and civilians in Donbas see a sustained reduction in violence,” she wrote on her Twitter account.

At the same time, Simmons stressed that Russia must fulfill its commitments, including through its influence on armed formations it backs.

The Trilateral Contact Group at a meeting on July 22 agreed to establish a full and comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas from July 27.

The agreements provide for a ban on offensive and reconnaissance operations, the use of firearms, including sniper rifles, as well as the application of disciplinary measures for ceasefire violations.
