Ukraine has officially informed the chairman of the UN Security Council on another attempt of Russia and pro-Russian militants to escalate the situation in Donbas, the press service of the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the United Nations has reported.
"These provocations... negate all the efforts of Ukraine and the international community aimed at restoring peace and stability, in fact, they make it impossible to implement the political part of the peaceful settlement of the conflict," the report says.
It was noted that, despite the achievements of the last meeting of the Tripartite Liaison Group on the agreements to introduce the complete ceasefire, a number of such armed provocations against the Ukrainian army along the demarcation line is continuously increasing.
