Earlier, we wrote that pro-Kremlin mercenaries have captured more territory in Donetsk and Luhansk regions that the area envisaged in the text of Minsk agreements. Serhiy Harmash, the representative of Ukrainian delegation in Minsk talks group posted that on Facebook. The message appeared after the online conference of political subdivision of the Minsk group on Tuesday, February 16.

"We've been trying to sort out the way Russian envoys treat the territory of temporarily occupied districts of Donbas. Because the territory that the Russian illegal armed formations de-facto captured is 1,400 kilometers bigger than that prescribed in Minsk agreements", Harmash wrote.
