Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian government forces have once again accused each other of violating a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military says separatists have broken the ceasefire 20 times between midnight and 9 AM local time Friday.

The pro-Russian separatists, for their part, claim that the government forces have shelled them 27 times.

Western countries fear that Russia will use attacks or alleged attacks in eastern Ukraine as a pretext to invade the country.

On Thursday, the two sides also accused each other of a series of attacks. One of the separatists’ attacks hit a kindergarten, where two employees are said to have been injured.
