“The top-priority goal of these agreements is to put an immediate end to bloodshed and create conditions for settlement in eastern Ukraine,” he said. “Now a roadmap is being elaborated to reflect practical steps on the implementation of each provision of the protocol.”
He said that along the ceasefire regime and exchange of detainees further efforts of the Contact Group would be focused on establishing efficient control at the Ukrainian-Russian border and ensuring possibilities for the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to the affected regions.
“A key element of the agreements is ensuring permanent monitoring by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) at the Ukrainian-Russian border along with the creation of a security zone in Ukrainian and Russian border regions,” he said. “We insist on establishing efficient control at the border between Ukraine and Russia on its both sides.”
He noted that as many as 59 members of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission were staying in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kramatorsk and Mariupol and the OSCE had “announced recruitment of more observers to the mission from among citizens of the OSCE member states“.
