"Russia continues to fuel the conflict in Donbas, sends regular troops and mercenaries to the territory not controlled by the Ukrainian government, and keeps reinforcing its militants and terrorists with sophisticated weaponry and military hardware," according to a ministry statement on the third anniversary of military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
"Russia remains unwilling to implement the Minsk Agreements, thus undermining all efforts taken by Ukraine and the international community towards de-escalation and stabilization in the region. Moscow's propaganda has no limits to lie, falsification and doublespeak. Human life has no value for the aggressor. Besides their actions in Ukraine, the Russian structures were regularly spotted interfering in the internal affairs of other sovereign states," the statement says.
