The armed conflict in Donbass began in 2014 after a coup d’etat 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). Kiev, in turn, initiated the so-called anti-terrorist operation (ATO), four years later changing its name to the operation of the combined forces (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. But even after the announcement of a truce between the parties to the conflict, shootings continue.
