The British Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly, criticized Russia's declaration of a "cease-fire regime" along the entire front lines on Christmas Day according to the Russian Orthodox Church's calendar.

Cleverly said - in a tweet on Twitter - that "pausing Russian attacks for 36 hours will do nothing to enhance the prospects for peace.

He4 added that Russia must permanently withdraw its forces, abandon its illegal control over Ukrainian lands, and end its cruel attacks against innocent civilians."

It is reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a "ceasefire" from noon on January 6 Moscow time to 24:00 on January 7 along the line of contact between the warring parties in Ukraine.
