"It is of course one thing to sign, and quite another thing to implement. And quite frankly, the results thus far on the ground have been mixed. The SMM on March 3 sent a letter to both generals of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination. We reminded both that the JCCC was in charge of coordinating the measures required to implement the agreement.

"We asked for a plan outlining their proposals so that the SMM could monitor and report on it. Although far from fully comprehensive, we have had a positive initial response from the Ukrainian forces representation to the JCCC. Specifically, they told us they had informed their rank and file on the ground about the requirements of the agreement. But there had been no response yet from the Russian Federation JCCC representation," Hug said.
