Steinmeier: Ukraine needs to do a lot for ceasefire in Donbas
German Foreign Minister says there is still a lot of work for full implementation of ceasefire in Ukraine
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier reiterated the need for a law on amnesty, the local elections and the special status of the occupied Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Such a statement he made on Thursday in Berlin, Reuters reports.
“With regard to the implementation of the Minsk agreement, we also have to talk about the special status law, the local election law, and the amnesty law. We both know that a lot of work will be necessary to ultimately come together on this point," Steinmeier said.
Recall that in late August, France and Germany supported the initiative of Ukraine to gain ceasefire from September 1.
As of today, the ceasefire still remains and there is a decrease in the number of attacks by militants of illegal armed groups.
