The agreements reached during the Normandy Four Summit in Paris in late 2019 are, in fact, not adhered to. Ukrinform news agency reported this, citing the EU representatives during the online meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna.

"Six months passed since the moment of the Normandy Summit in Paris, when leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany agreed on a number of steps necessary to abide by Minsk agreements, including full and comprehensive ceasefire. Unfortunately, apart from extending the law "On special order of local governance in separate areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions" and two exchanges of prisoners related to the conflict, not much was done, in spite of constructive approach of the Ukrainian leadership", the statement said.

At that, the OSCE claimed that the number of victims of Donbas conflict keeps growing, and damage done to buildings and infrastructure is amassing.

European diplomats made an emphasis on the necessity to reach full ceasefire as a condition of peaceful solution of the conflict and restoration of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
