USA see no change in the situation in Ukraine, but state the violations of the Minsk agreements against Russia, said White house press Secretary Josh Ernest.
"As you know, the situation in Ukraine, unfortunately, has not changed. The changes that We'd like to see, must be that Russia has begun to fulfil its part of the " Minsk agreements ". When Russia starts to do it, then she will have an opportunity to begin to reintegrate into the international community ", - said Ernest, at a press conference, without referring to the ceasefire, which already operates in the Donbas.
"We are seeing that the Russian Federation intervene in the situation in the East of Ukraine, We observe that it would destabilize (the situation) and violates the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country (Ukraine). As a result, Russia faces serious consequences, impairing its economy, " added the spokesman.
The Ukrainian authorities in April of last year began military action against the self-proclaimed LNR and DND. According to the final data of the UN, the victims of the conflict steel not less than 8 thousand people.
Moscow has stated many times that is not a party to domestic conflict, support of militias and does not send in the Donbass troops. Anyway, Kiev and the West continues to blame Russia of "military aggression" and occasionally "find" in the East of Ukraine and in the border regions of Russia "certain units" of the armed forces, although international observers in the periodic inspections have never found any undeclared military activities.
in the last period of time in Eastern Ukraine observed the cease-fire. On Wednesday, the parties signed an agreement about the discharge of weapons a caliber of less than 100 millimeters and tanks from the frontline in Donbass. So, today in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the basis for the settlement of the Ukrainian fall, the key problem remains the political situation, for example, the adoption and assurance of the special status of Donbass, constitutional reform and the holding of local elections.
