It is important for both sides to observe the ceasefire in Donbas, but Russia cannot act as a guarantor of the ceasefire. The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov stated this, TASS news agency reported.
He also adds that the ceasefire is a significant step towards strengthening mutual trust and defusing tensions on the contact line.
"This is a very significant and positive step towards strengthening mutual trust and easing tensions on the contact line... It will be important that both sides fully adhere to their obligations and agreements," Dmitry Peskov said.
Peskov said that Russia is not a party to the conflict in the Donbas.
As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin called this conversation meaningful.
"As for the atmosphere, it was constructive, businesslike, the conversation was meaningful," Dmitry Peskov said.
The parties expressed satisfaction with the ceasefire regime, introduced in Donbas on July 27 and noted its indefinite nature. Peskov added that compliance with all the agreements reached remains important.
