"ST PETERSBURG, June 18. /TASS/. There exists a danger the ceasefire in Ukraine will be disrupted on a large scale, Russian Foreign Ministry’s human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov told TASS on Thursday.
"God save us from the large-scale disruption of ceasefire agreements, with all the consequences that come with it," Dolgov said. "There are such fears as the Ukrainian authorities are reluctant to implement the agreements fully."
"The Ukrainian army and battalions continue to destabilise and provoke the situation," he said.
Moscow continues to record "gross violations of human rights in Ukraine," he said.
"First, it means killing civilians. We are handing the information over to corresponding international structures and will be doing so," he said recalling "quite a series of political assassinations in Ukraine."
"There have never been any investigations and there still are not, to say nothing about any punishment," Dolgov said expressing the hope that positive dynamics in settlement of the Ukraine crisis "will get the upper hand."
Talks of the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine) leaders on the Ukrainian issue along with regular talks of the Contact Group on resolving the Ukraine conflict took place in the Belarusian capital Minsk on February 12.
The talks ended by adoption of a 13-point package of measures, which contained in particular a ceasefire starting from February 15, withdrawal of heavy weapons from the line disengaging the Kiev troops and militias of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, as well as measures on long-term political settlement in Donbas.
