KIEV, January 23. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has said that he will not allow the conflict in Donbass to freeze.
"I will not tolerate the conflict to freeze as we should not get frozen territories back into the country either in a year or in two or even ten years," Poroshenko said speaking at a conference of local self-government bodies.
"There is no alternative but a political solution for Ukraine’s sovereignty," he said urging political movements "not to play with the fire of territorial integrity."
Besides, he said that "the sequence and logic of the Minsk process guarantees Ukraine will regain its territorial integrity."
The Minsk agreements, adopted by the Contact Group resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine and then approved by the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France in the Belarussian capital on February 12, 2015, envisaged a ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and the militias of the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk starting from February 15. The 13-point package of measures adopted in Minsk contains withdrawal of heavy weapons from the line disengaging the Kiev troops and militias of the self-proclaimed republics, as well as measures on long-term political settlement in Donbass.
