Ukraine ceasefire: Fighting continues in Debaltseve; further UN sanctions imposed on Russia
February 16 , 2015
Monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will make another attempt to reach eastern Ukraine’s Debaltseve town, where fighting has not ceased even after the ceasefire came into effect.
On Sunday, the observers were denied access to the town by the pro-Russia rebels, the OSCE said. Separatists say Debaltseve should be considered rebel territory as they have surrounded it.
Reports say that the truce has largely been observed in other conflict zones in eastern Ukraine.
