Despite a ceasefire in Ukraine having been supposed to come into effect nearly three months ago, fierce fighting continues at the hotspots of Pisky near the battle-shattered Donetsk airport and the village of Shyrokyne near the Ukrainian-held port city of Mariupol.

Speaking at a briefing in Kyiv on Monday, the press secretary of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine on the Anti-Terrorist Operation, Colonel Oleksandr Motuzyanik, said that while fighting has decreased in some parts of the combat zone, it continues unabated in two main hotspots.

“The hottest point was the town of Pisky – it saw 10 attacks [by Russian-backed militants] on Ukrainian army positions,” Motuzyanik said.

“Near Mariupol the town of Shyrokyne again became the epicenter [of the fighting.] There were 17 cases of the violation of the ceasefire on the part of the militants,” he said.
