BERLIN, July 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The regime of a reciprocal ceasefire in eastern Ukraine should be monitored by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in Berlin on Wednesday.
“All hostages need to be freed, and control should be established on the border. These measures should lead to settlement. All sides should observe these terms,” Klimkin said after a meeting with his counterparts from Russia, Germany and France.
“Despite all measures used regarding ceasefire, now we all understand that we need a bilateral ceasefire,” he said. “We have lost many human lives, much time. Now this (bilateral ceasefire) is our common goal.” “The OSCE should monitor” the truce, Klimkin said.
Pro-Kiev forces resumed military attacks on Ukraine’s south-eastern regions after President Petro Poroshenko, who had won an early presidential election on May 25 and taken office on June 7, ended the 10-day ceasefire in the south-east on June 30.
When the truce between Ukrainian soldiers and south-eastern militias was in place, it was reportedly violated by Kiev more than once.
