The discussion on the essence of the 'road map' to solve the Donbas conflict... alas, it was too short, because the Russian side does not agree on our key priorities. There is still fundamental difference between us in terms of approaches to this road map.

Today, I showed Lavrov (Russian foreign minister, - 112 International) how Russian drones - the ones coming from Russia - fly over Donbas; that included the routes and photos of those drones. I explained how the Russian side makes it impossible for OSCE drones to work... there is no real control over the situation there.

Security is a crucial moment for every one of us. This month alone, 132 tons of mines and shells hit our positions. This month alone, 317 attacks on checkpoints across Donbas took place. It's an ill-will intention to make the humanitarian situation even worse than it is.

We are paying maximum efforts so that we can provide humanitarian access for the Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations, and to make the discussions on POW release more fruitful. We're ready for anything to release our warriors, our heroes from teh occupied Donbas.

We will keep on fighting for the world to know and correctly treat what is going on in the occupied Crimea. It means quite a lot.
