KIEV, June 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as the Defense Ministry, note attempts to use provocations for violating a ceasefire that President Petro Poroshenko announced on Friday, June 20.
“In response to the initiatives aimed at restoring peace, militants and terrorists continued armed attacks that violated the ceasefire conditions,” the Ukrainian ministries said in a joint statement on Sunday.
“Tonight, illegal armed groups fired at positions of Ukraine’s armed forces in Kramatorsk, Sloviansk, Artyomovsk and other towns,” the statement says.
“Within the day, militants conducted attacks and mortar assaults on Ukrainian border guards near the settlements of Krasnopatrizansk and Nozdryovka, Luhansk,” the statement says.
“The attacks carried out by terrorists must be immediately condemned. Ukraine addresses foreign partners to support the country’s consistent efforts aimed at restoring peace and implementing the provisions of the Geneva statement of April 17, 2014,” it says.
“Our state, together with the international community, expects the Russian Federation to exert real and efficient support to the Ukrainian president’s peace plan,” the statement says.
