“Tragic news in town today.

As a result of an attack by the occupying forces, a projectile hit a house and killed a family,” Tymoshenko wrote.

"In the morning they talk about the 'Christmas peace', and at noon they kill a whole family." Russia had previously announced that it wanted to introduce a cease-fire in Ukraine in view of the upcoming Orthodox Christmas.

Attacks are also increasing in the eastern region of Donetsk.

According to the Ukrainian general staff, Russia is concentrating on an offensive around the cities of Bakhmut and Lyman.

Taking Bakhmut could allow Russia to launch attacks on surrounding towns in the region.

News about the Ukraine war: Russia wants to return attacks despite the ceasefire

+++ 9:00 p.m .:

The Russian military has announced that it will continue to respond to Ukrainian attacks during the 36-hour ceasefire ordered by Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin.

"The decision concerns the cessation of initiating fire and offensive actions on our part," wrote Moscow's occupation chief in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, Denis Puschilin, on Telegram.

"That doesn't mean we won't respond to enemy provocations!

Or even give the enemy any chance to improve their positions on the front line during these holiday hours,” Puschilin added.

Earlier, Putin had announced a cease-fire in view of the upcoming Orthodox Christmas.

This should last from Friday afternoon until Sunday night.

News on the Ukraine war: Kyiv rejects Putin's temporary ceasefire

+++ 6:25 p.m .:

Ukraine has rejected the ceasefire ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin for the Orthodox Christmas as “hypocrisy”.

"Russia must leave the occupied territories - only then will there be a 'temporary ceasefire'," Presidential Advisor Mykhailo Podoliak wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

Unlike Russia, Ukraine would not attack foreign territory and kill civilians.

The Kremlin had previously ordered a 36-hour unilateral ceasefire from Friday afternoon.

The federal government reacted cautiously to Putin's initiative.

"We have taken note of the announcement," said a government spokesman on Thursday in Berlin.

Any cessation of fighting would save lives.

In order for the war to end, however, Russia must withdraw its troops completely from Ukraine.

News in the Ukraine war: Kyiv rejects temporary ceasefire

First report from Thursday, January 5th:

Kiev/Moscow – The Ukrainian government in Kiev has no interest in a short-term ceasefire in the Ukraine war.

This was announced by the Office of President Volodyodmyr Zelenskyy.

They reject the call by Kirill, the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, for a ceasefire between Russian and Ukrainian troops for Orthodox Christmas.

"It is a cynical trap and an element of propaganda," Presidential Advisor Mykhailo Podoliak wrote on Twitter on Thursday (January 5).

The Russian Orthodox Church is also not an authority in global orthodoxy and only acts as a "war propagandist".

Podoliak accused the Moscow Patriarchate of calling for genocide against the Ukrainian people.

Earlier, Russian Patriarch Kirill had called for a ceasefire on Friday (January 6) and Saturday (January 7) from both sides in the “internal conflict”.

According to the Orthodox Church calendar followed in Ukraine and Russia, Friday is Christmas Eve and Saturday is Christmas Day.
