“The president has done everything possible to give a chance to those who want peace in the country. But unfortunately this call has so far not received a proper reaction. The ceasefire regime expired,” he said at a meeting with diplomats.
The main condition for peace in the south-eastern regions of Ukraine is compliance with the terms stated in the European Council’s decision of June 27 — bilateral ceasefire, control of the border under the supervision of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), release of all hostages and commencement of substantive consultations without preconditions.
This is a second meeting between representatives of the presidential administration and the heads of diplomatic missions to inform them about the situation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
