Failed attempts to truce

Ukraine has been at war since 2014 Against Prorussian separatists who control panels of territories in the east of the country and, according to Kiev and Westerners, supported financially and militarily by Moscow.

On December 22, the belligerents had agreed to restore a ceasefire on the front line, before accusing the next day new violations. All preceding truce attempts have failed.
