"In describing the situation, the minister applied very correct definition: earlier we discussed the "hybrid war", and now we have "hybrid truce." Since Sept. 5 armistice, there were many incidents, we have lost more than 400 soldiers," Dolhov said.

Thus he commented on today's announcement that Kyiv and the militants agreed to a truce on the outskirts of the Donetsk airport.

Dolhov said that Ukraine's readiness to implement the truce agreement reached in Minsk, however, is not matched with the same by the opposite side.
