‘Everyone understands that the ceasefire is the first step to peace. On the other hand, everybody realizes that it is practically impossible to disengage forces along the entire contact line in Donbas, and there are many reasons for that. That’s why the parties agreed to go with ‘step-by-step’ format – the way many conflicts were resolved over the last 20 years. At first, the Ukrainian side offered 12 areas on the map to set the disengagement zones there; the Minsk group agreed on seven. Three such areas are already there, and four more are discussed’, Georgiy Tuka, Ukraine’s Deputy Minister for temporarily occupied territories.

He expressed disappointment over the fact that  the ceasefire regime in the defined areas of Donbas so far has failed. However, he said, there is no other way than to try negotiating over and over again.
