On April 2014, the Ukrainian military launched a military operation against the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, which declared their independence. On September 5, the trilateral Minsk Agreements signed by the envoys of Russia, Ukraine and of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) went into force. This document stipulated the ceasefire on the territories of the DPR and LPR as one of its main measures. However, the shelling of the Republics does not cease despite the peace agreements.
