Ukraine – Situation in the Donbass (April 11, 2016)


France is extremely concerned by the notable increase in violations of the ceasefire in Ukraine over the last few days, as well as by the increased instances of obstruction facing the OSCE observation mission.

The recent incidents targeted at the observers near the line of contact are unacceptable.

We call on all parties to respect the ceasefire and to guarantee the OSCE access throughout its area of operations, as they pledged to do so.

The only way to stabilize the situation is through the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements.
