German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was speaking in light of the upcoming four-party meeting with the participation the German, Russian, French and Ukrainian foreign ministers.
The talks in Berlin “are a landmark event”, Steinmeier said on Wednesday.
“It would be good to coordinate steps towards a bilateral ceasefire. However, it would be not easy. Only if the ceasefire agreement is observed, the talks on the crisis resolution may be possible,” he said.
“The situation in eastern Ukraine is very dangerous. Battles have intensified. At any moment neither political nor military means help stop violence,” Steinmeier said.
“We should use the final opportunity to prevent such events,” he said.
