In addition, Grad multiple launch rocket systems are still deployed near populated localities in violation of the distance to which heavy weapons should have been withdrawn.

According to Hutsuliak, the command of the Russian occupying forces tries to take advantage of the quarantine measures introduced in the temporarily occupied territory in Donetsk and Luhansk regions to restrict the movement of vehicles, including those of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.

In turn, Ukraine's Joint Forces steadily adhere to the ceasefire, however they are always ready to retaliate in case of Russian-occupation forces' hostile actions.
