FOOL'S DAY CEASEFIRE
Ukrainian authorities have announced new ceasefire, that came into force since April 1. As many people have noted, the date is quite symbolical since it is coincided with the international Fool's Day. In practice the newly announced "silent regime" is one sided and the terrorists have continued to shell Ukrainian localities.
Almost every day during last month we saw new blood reports in news feed. In sum we have lost about 30 soldiers during March. Besides that, the last month has almost beat the record of last year on the intensity of hostilities. Despite that, we see that the authorities stubbornly refuse to take radical and state-defending steps, prefering to focus on other thing.
Quite possible that such defeatist decision has some relation to the plans to get the next tranche from the IMF, which the Foundation Board is planning to discuss on April 3. Few days ago, the EU ambassador to Ukraine Hugo Mingarelli said that corruption in Ukraine sometimes is more frightening than the war, and noted that there are several oligarchs in Ukraine who considering the country as a "cash dispenser." And his position is close to the truth in this point - after all, Ukraine's politicians have proven they can rapidly transfer everything into cash, even the life of soldiers, killed in result of so-called "ceasefire."
Of course, loans to be repaid. But the current elites clearly understand they will be out of the picture by the time. Of course, loans to be repaid.

However, now the Ukraine defenders once again find themselves in a situation when they are prohibited to fire back.

To prove the meaningless and ineffectiveness of the new ceasefire we can just consider the report of the Anti-Terrorist Operation press center for April 1. The press center reported that in total, 34 hostile attacks took place in the Donetsk sector yesterday, and 16 of them involved use of heavy armor. The terrorists increased the number of artillery attacks in the Mariupol sector. First of all, this refers to Pavlopil – Shyrokyne frontline area, as well as Krasnohorivka and Novohryhorivka. Militants are massively using mortars. They shot several times from Grad-P rocket launcher in Vodiane and Hnutove. “There were no calm areas along the contact line yesterday. In total, 42 militants’ attacks took place in the Mariupol sector yesterday, and 25 of them involved use of heavy weaponry.
