‘So far, there has been not much of a positive to surely say there is progress in the settlement of Donbas conflict. The actual ceasefire held for 1-2 days. But now, there are more attacks, including those with the use of mortars. Over 20 attacks took place during the last night’, Klimkin said at the joint press conference with his German counterpart Frank-Walther Steinmeier. It took place within his visit to Germany on Thursday.
Steinmeier assured that Ukraine can rely on his country’s support, adding that the conflicting sides should remember about the amnesty and the law about special status. ‘We know there’s a lot of work to be done yet’, he admitted.
Previously, the Minsk Trilateral Group met in the Belarusian capital on August 26 and agreed to implement the full and comprehensive ceasefire regime in the combat area starting on September 1.
