At the briefing in Brussels, French President Francois Hollande said that Normandy Four will discuss the situation in Ukraine in a few weeks if necessary, reports Joinfo.ua.
According to Hollande, if the ceasefire agreement is observed from February 15, the next week the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France will hold a telephone conference to ensure that all agreements come into force.
Yesterday in Minsk, there was reached an agreement on a cease-fire in the Donbas, creating a line of demarcation, and withdrawal of heavy artillery.
European leaders said that sanctions against Russia would be in force as long as Russia started to fulfill the Minsk Agreement.
However, while the negotiations were being held in the capital of Belarus, the Russian army transferred one hundred and fifty tanks, APCs and Grads to the Donbas. Despite the statements by the Russian officials about the absence of Russian military equipment and troops on the territory of Ukraine, on the night of February 12, during the talks in Minsk, near Izvaryno there was conducted another move over the Russian-Ukrainian border by fifty tanks, forty multiple rocket launchers (Grad, Uragan, and Smerch) and the same number of APCs. Such information was announced in the group "News resistance" this morning.
