In four items Pyatt named the irregularities Russia allows itself. In particular, according to him, the Russian Federation continues to support the separatists, and even created command and control elements in eastern Ukraine to coordinate military operations there, Joinfo.ua reports.

"We know Russia established training areas in eastern Ukraine to train separatist fighters in gunnery and artillery firing," Pyatt writes.

In addition, according to him, the Russian Federation continues to maintain advanced surface-to-air missile systems near the front lines in violation of the Minsk agreements.

It should be recalled that in yesterday's talks in Berlin the Normandy Four allegedly agreed to cease hostilities in the Donbas and withdraw heavy weapons. But the main problem was not resolved. The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Pavlo Klimkin described the talks as complex and said that the ministers had failed to reach agreement on a number of issues.
