“It is important for the sides to coordinate documents concerning the provisions of the Minsk agreements, which have laid down the framework for further specifying decisions of the conflicting parties on each concrete article,” Lukashevich said.

“Everything is fragile” in the southeast of Ukraine, there is growing evidence that Kiev is consolidating military grouping in different parts of the country, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
“We expect that [President Petro] Poroshenko and his team, as well as militias, will be committed to the Minsk agreements”, he said.
No decision has been made so far on sending a humanitarian convoy to the southeast of Ukraine in the coming days, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich told a briefing on Thursday.
“The decision on sending the convoy in the coming days has not been made,” the diplomat said. He added that in accordance with the August 26 agreements, Russia had previously announced the intention to send, in co-operation with the Ukrainian side and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), another humanitarian convoy to the southeast of Ukraine.
