Merkel confirms deterioration in Donbas

According to the German Chancellor, separatists disrupt armistice more often than the Ukrainian servicemen.

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced deterioration of the situation in the Donbas. She made such a statement during the press conference in Brussels on June 26.

“From the OSCE reports, we see that armistice is disrupted by the separatists more often than by Ukraine,” the Chancellor said.

Merkel stressed that the situation with the implementation of the Minsk agreements remained difficult, and negotiations in the working groups were being conducted very slowly.

In addition, the German leader stressed the need to implement the Minsk agreements.

It should be recalled that on June 25, U.S. President Barack Obama held a telephone conversation with the leader of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and demanded from him to withdraw the Russian troops from Ukraine.
