The armed conflict in Donbass began in 2014 after a coup in Ukraine and continues to this day. Residents of the region refused to recognize the new government and announced the creation of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR). In response, Kiev launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation (ATO), four years later changing its name to the Joint Forces Operation (JF).
According to the UN, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict. The issue of resolving the situation in Donbass is being discussed within the framework of the adoption of the Minsk Agreements, which regulate steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, even after the announcement of an armistice between the parties to the conflict, shootings continue.
