In the eight weeks since the truce came into force, the UN says 957 people have been killed, amid continuing violations on both sides.
A new report by the office describes a total breakdown of law and order in rebel-held Donetsk and Luhansk.
It also highlights credible allegations of abuses by government forces.
957 deaths in 2.5 months of the truce is 28% of the 3360 deaths during the 5 month war.
4,317 deaths since April, 957 of them since the 5 September ceasefire, and 9,921 people wounded
466,829 internally displaced persons within Ukraine
454,339 refugees living abroad, 387,355 of them in Russia
Five months of truce is on track to be about 56% as deadly as the Ukraine-Russia [pro-Russia] war.
Russia has been widely accused of fanning the violence by covertly supplying the rebels with military aid – an accusation it denies.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk accused Russia on Thursday of seeking “deliberately to provoke a large-scale war”.
