Observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) have registered more than 3,000 ceasefire violations in the last two days in eastern Ukraine.

This is the highest number so far this year. It occurred before Russia’s recognition of the two breakaway regions of Luhansk and Donetsk in eastern Ukraine and its decision to deploy “peacekeeping forces” there.

In the OSCE’s daily report, which is based on information obtained up to Sunday evening, there were 2,158 new ceasefire violations in Donetsk, including 1,100 explosions. In the previous reporting period, 591 violations were reported.

In Luhansk, 1,073 ceasefire violations were reported, including 926 explosions, between the evening of February 18 and 20, up from 975 from the previous report.
