The situation along the entire contact line is under control of the Ukrainian troops.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on March 16 announced the completion of the Anti-Terrorist Operation in Donbas and transition to the Joint Forces Operation.

On the same day, he appointed Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Lt. Gen Serhiy Nayev to the newly created post of Ukraine's Commander of the Joint Forces.
