The French leader underlined that any country failed to respect the Minsk agreements would face sanctions.

"The ceasefire has been violated several times. It must now be fully respected along the entire front line," French President Francois Hollande explained during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Meanwhile, Hollande said that he had no evidence of the fact that the Russian military equipment was sent to the east of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the OSCE stresses that the situation in the Donbas can completely get out of control. Heidi Tagliavini, the Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson, said that the conflict could jeopardize the entire structure of Security and Cooperation in Europe – the whole process that began in Helsinki forty years ago.
