A new cease-fire in the Donbas can be decisive for a long-term peace settlement. Now everything depends on Russia and the militants it supports. This was stated on Twitter by the Canadian Embassy in Ukraine.
вЂњThis week will be crucial for providing hope for a peaceful settlement in the Donbas, ending human losses and destroying homes and infrastructure. We welcome the Ukrainian authorities and the people of Ukraine for their efforts and desire to stop the conflict, вЂњ the statement said.
Canadian diplomats expressed hope that this time the cease-fire will be complete and lasting, as вЂњthe main point of reference, without which it is impossible to achieve a lasting peace.вЂќ
вЂњIt is entirely up to Russia and the militants it supports to keep their promises and fulfill Russia's international obligations,вЂќ the Embassy stressed.
As you know, the new ceasefire in the Donbas began today, July 27, at midnight, but almost immediately the militants violated it. After that, this morning, the enemy once again attacked the positions of the Ukrainian military.
