Following the Battle of Debaltseve in early February this year, the front in Eastern Ukraine became comparatively much quieter. Both sides appeared to heed the Minsk II agreement, withdrawing first their heavy artillery, and then their tanks from the front line in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts. Subsequently, the number of recorded attacks dropped, as well as the number of daily causalities. While a positive outlook was warranted two months ago, it unfortunately is no longer grounded in reality. The truth of the situation is, that despite a lack of western media attention, the ceasefire in Eastern Ukraine is crumbling.
