MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Moscow is alarmed by violations of the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
"We're very much alarmed by this," he said. "The ceasefire is being violated and the intensity of the shelling has increased in the past few days."
"This conflict can be settled only by political methods only and there is a floor laid down by the Minsk accords for the purpose," Lavrov said.
In his words, Moscow warns Kiev against return to military scenario, only dialogue is required.
Russia will push for objective investigation of a bus shelling in Donbas, Russian Foreign Minister went on to say.
“We insist on a thorough, objective probe. We hope the OSCE mission will conduct an objective investigation,” Lavrov said.
“There are different versions but it is necessary to conduct a thorough investigation rather than pointing fingers at Ukrainian colleagues,” he said.
