"As for the situation in eastern Ukraine, there is already an unalterable basis for a peaceful settlement – ‘Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements’ agreed in February 2015. This document was approved by UN Security Council Resolution 2202 and thus became part of international law," Lavrov stated.
