Ukraine: Is December 10 still a ceasefire day?

On the evening of December 11th was published the SMM report 295/2020 corresponding to what happened between December 9th at 7:30 pm and December 10th at 7:30 pm.

In total there were 290 violations and 267 explosions (all sectors). The worst day since July 27, 2020. December 10 was a day like before July 27, 2020, the date that was supposed to mark the beginning of a definitive ceasefire, which over the course of the days and weeks became “fictitious” again.

The day before had been a relatively quiet day.

The information available in the SMM report and the Ukrainian press does not allow us to reconstruct the reason for this sudden surge of violence. We can only see that the shootings and explosions took place in a short period of time, as if the artillery calculators were plugged in again or if it was a decision to simultaneously activate several artillery pieces or to respond to any fire.

What’s the problem? Probably in what we don’t see or don’t want to see.

Is December 10, 2020 still a day of ceasefire? Objectively NO. It will be necessary to rethink a new one, on other bases.
