MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. There is progress in the process of heavy weaponry withdrawal in the east of Ukraine, and it is important to consolidate that progress, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday at Russia’s Diplomatic Academy.
"In the process of heavy weaponry withdrawal, we see some progress," Lavrov said. "Latest reports from there [east Ukraine] also confirm this. It is important to consolidate it [the progress]," he added.
Russia’s top diplomat reminded that other measures need to be fulfilled in line with the agreed timeframe, including solving key humanitarian issues and carrying out a constitutional reform that should ensure the legal rights and interests of the Donbas citizens.
