"I emphasize the exceptional importance of coordination with representatives of the OSCE, the OSCE SMM to prove strict adherence of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to the orders of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and the Minsk agreements," the Head of State said. According to him, it is necessary to demonstrate to entire world that the Ukrainian party fulfills the undertaken commitments. At the same time, Russian-backed militants and regular troops of Russia violate the agreements: do not withdraw the artillery, carry out mortar shelling, use tanks.
The Head of State noted that the intensity of work and pressure in the issue of release of all hostages should be increased.
