Ukraine – Violations of the ceasefire (July 11, 2016)


France is concerned at the increased violations of the ceasefire over the last few days. They have reportedly resulted in the death of three Ukrainian soldiers and injured almost 20 people.

We call on the parties to comply with the ceasefire and to complete the withdrawal of heavy weapons, as they have pledged to do so on numerous occasions.

The situation in eastern Ukraine can only be stabilized through the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
