Koval noted that "Russia violates the provisions of the Minsk agreements, and does not intend to comply with them."

"The Russian troops are preparing for the resumption of active offensive operations in order to advance to the administrative border of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as penetrate the land corridor to Crimea," said Koval.

He emphasized that international sanctions against Russia "are effective, but not enough to force Russia to abandon the plans of aggression against Ukraine."
