At the same time, he urged both sides to continue to work on the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

"For several weeks, we have been working on an agreement on the withdrawal of the parties in conflict. We failed to implement it because of intransigence on both sides. Despite intensive efforts, there is also neither progress in improving the security situation in the eastern part of Ukraine, nor regarding an agreement on local elections ", - said Steinmeier.
