Ukraine’s military reports significant fall in fighting

Ukraine’s military said on Saturday there had been a significant decrease in attacks by pro-Russian separatists in the east overnight, but said rebels had fired GRAD missiles at the town of Avdiivka despite a two-week-old ceasefire deal. On Friday, Ukraine reported the first deaths among its servicemen in three days, underscoring the fragility of the truce meant to have taken effect on February 15, as government troops and rebels pulled back heavy weapons from the frontline. Overnight there was a “significant decrease in attacks in general and a full ceasefire in certain parts of the conflict zone,” the military said on its Facebook page. It said the truce had been most fully observed around the rebel-controlled city of Luhansk and near government-held Mariupol on the Sea of Azov.
