Censor.NET reports referring to the Foreign Ministry press service.
"We appeal to the international partners to step up political and diplomatic pressure on the Kremlin in order to stop the dangerous escalation of tension in the Donbas," the statement reads.
As noted, the Ukrainian side steadily adheres to its commitments and will continue to do its utmost to stop killings in the Donbas and restore peaceful life, constitutional order, and respect for human rights in the temporarily occupied territory.
"We insist that the Russian Federation, as a party to the Minsk agreements, without a delay fulfill its obligations, withdraw its military, mercenaries and weapons from the Donbas, halt the illegal flow of arms and military equipment to militants, and unblock the work of the OSCE SMM," the ministry states.
As reported, only during July 22-24, Russian-backed militants committed 189 attacks on Ukrainian positions.
"At that, they continue to defiantly and provocatively use weapons that should have been long removed from the contact line under the Minsk agreements," the statement notes.
In addition, six clashes occurred in the vicinity of Novozvanivka, Trudivske, Avdiivka, which resulted in losses among ATO personnel.
"The deliberate aggravation of the security situation is accompanied by Russia's massive supplies of military equipment, weapons, and ammunition, as well as deployment of new mercenaries and professional soldiers," the ministry adds.
Clearly traceable facts of intimidation of OSCE SMM observers are also stressed.
"It is clear that the thesis of supposedly "domestic "character of the conflict in the Donbas, which Moscow is actively trying to impose on the international community, is just an attempt of the Russian Federation to divert attention from its real role as an instigator, a direct participant and a party to the conflict," the statement concludes.
