The situation in the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine is remaining tense. Both the Ukrainian military and local militais accuse each other of violating the ceasefire region on a constant basis. Thus, according to the Ukrainian side, there were 11 violations of the ceasefire by forces of the Donetsk People’s Repubic (DPR) recently. At the same time, the DPR said that pro-Kiev forces had violated the ceasefire 24 times.
Nonetheless, there is still a relative parity at the frontline because the Ukrainian side has not employed its superior firepower and manpower to carry out significant offensive operations so far. This may change if the US backers of the Kiev regime decide that the escalation is the region contributes to their political and economic goals.
