    The ceasefire regime introduced in Donbass on June 24 has failed largely because the parties to the conflict have no political will to fulfill their commitments, the German Foreign Ministry said Friday.


    "The agreed truce is not being maintained. We continue to observe numerous instances of the use of weapons along the line of contact," the ministry said in a statement.



    "After a brief period of the reduction of hostilities, it should be noted that, apparently, the parties to the conflict lack the will for long-term ceasefire," the statement said.

    "Over the past day, the Ukrainian Armed Forces committed 45 violations of the ceasefire regime," the source said. 



    According to the Command, 20 settlements of the Republic were subjected to shellings, during which heavy artillery, mortars of different calibre, IFVs, armoured personnel carriers, grenade launchers and small arms were used.
