 "Russian side not interested in stability in Donbas," - Poroshenko

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko observes no peace in the Donbas in spite of the Minsk agreements.

As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine TV channel, he said it at a briefing in Berlin.

"The cease-fire can not be partial. It's either in place or it is not. Now, it is not. People are still dying at the line of contact - both military and civilians. At the moment, the Russian side is not interested in stability in the Donbas. They continue to destabilize the situation in Ukraine. So we can hardly expect Russia's actions to be the same as ours towards them," he said.

"Much has been done to achieve a peaceful resolution of the situation in the Donbas. I always say it is terrible that in spite of the Minsk agreements (much time has already passed), we still have a big problem with security in the Donbas. First and foremost, we have to avoid these problems. The enemy neglects the cease-fire, which poses threat to civilian population. From November to January, we had a lot of cases of cease-fire violations. And all of them were on the part of pro-Russian militants. The enemy uses weapons that are absolutely forbidden," the head of state stressed.
