According to Brian McKeon, the cease-fire violations (along the entire demarcation line - ed.) continue to be registered and, in most cases, they are committed by the Russia's and the separatists' side. He added that this is not the immediate and comprehensive cease-fire, envisaged by the plan.
The Pentagon representative stressed that the tactics of evasion, which is used by the pro-Russian forces, may be a harbinger of even greater offensive, as it was before the last Russia's and militants' onslaught in January.
Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense has called on Russia to stop such actions, observe the cease-fire, and let Ukraine choose its own path independently.
