In the spring of 2014, conflict erupted in the oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk (collectively known as the Donbas), where pro-Russian separatists took control of regional and local government offices in Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kramatorsk and Sloviansk. Similar moves in other parts of the country were quickly suppressed, but in the Donbas separatist forces succeeded in taking over much of the two oblasts’ territory, until the government of Ukraine regained control and separatists forces stopped their advance. Despite the Minsk Protocol of September 2014 and the renewal of its cease-fire provisions in February 2015, the conflict is still not resolved. A “contact line” continues to separate Ukrainian government-controlled areas from non-government-controlled areas.
