"442 confirmed civilian casualties in 2017 already, outpacing 2016. People of Donbas deserve a real ceasefire," Volker wrote on Twitter.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Volker will meet with Russian special representative Vladislav Surkov today, November 13.

The parties intend to discuss the Russian draft of the UN resolution on the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in Donbas, as well as the implementation of the Minsk agreements and the work of the Minsk Contact Group.
