Chief of the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces Viktor Muzhenko and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Sweden Micael Bydén visited one of the areas of Donbas conflict zone on October 2. This was reported on the Facebook page of General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
It is noted that Muzhenko drew the attention of his Swedish colleague to the critical state of civilian infrastructure affected by shelling of the occupants.
Chief of the General Staff informed General Bydén that "the peaks of ceasefire violation in Donbas conflict zone by the Russian-terrorist forces coincide with the rounds of peace talks in Minsk, which shows that Russia pressures the negotiation process."
As it was reported earlier in order to regain control over the Donbas border, it is important for Ukraine to consolidate its efforts at the international level, and also to cooperate with the OSCE. This was stated by the head of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Petro Tsyhykal after the meeting with the head of OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Ertugrul Apakan.
