 Minsk process at risk of failure and this must be said explicitly, - Ukraine’s Foreign Minister

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that the Minsk process is put in jeopardy.

"The entire Minsk process, especially the refusal from weapons, is currently undoubtedly under threat and we should explicitly say it," he said on air of Ukraine today TV channel (uatoday.tv) Thursday night, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

According to him, the Ukrainian government has intelligence on the movement of troops on temporarily uncontrolled part of the Donbas and the deployment of weapons in the territory of industrial facilities in the region.

"We still do not have confidence in the process. What confidence can we get without full access to the Donbas? When we have daily cases, and we know about it, about the disguised weapons, including heavy weapons, near the mines and industrial facilities, when we have information about the movement of troops in the Donbas. We cannot talk about actual cease-fire," the foreign minister said.

Pavlo Klimkin also said that he had informed his colleagues about it before the Council of Foreign Ministers of the EU Member States.
