MOSCOW, September 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The truce in Ukraine is being observed despite separate incidents, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Wednesday.
“Our assessments coincide with assessments of our partners, including the European Union,” Lavrov said.
“In line with them, the truce is being observed and separate incidents should be gradually fading away,” he noted.
Lavrov said there is an impression that in certain cases, violations of the truce are provoked by Ukrainian servicemen.
“We hope the Ukrainian leadership takes measures to stop such cases,” he said.
No one will allow Ukraine to give up its nuclear-free status, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov added.
“No one will allow this, including Western countries which have decisive influence on Kiev,” he said.
He also noted that the Ukrainian defense minister would not be allowed to discuss the abolition of Ukraine’s nuclear-free status.
