UN, February 13. /TASS/. The UN Secretariat does not view the conflict in Ukraine as dormant or frozen, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Miroslav Jenca said in a report to the UN Security Council on Tuesday.
"As consistently highlighted by incidents over the past five years, the conflict in eastern Ukraine is neither dormant nor frozen," he said. "It is a conflict in the heart of Europe which continues to claim victims."
"As reported by the OSCE, military advance positions on both parts of the contact line are coming closer in the so-called grey areas, while the use of heavy weapons and their deployment in the proximity of the contact line is a reality," the UN official added.
