Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba says Ukraine is still adhering to the first scenario for the reintegration of Donbas, which is an attempt to peacefully resolve the crisis.

In an interview on Ukraine's Pryamiy TV channel, he was asked about the five scenarios for the reintegration of Donbas, which were again considered at the latest meeting of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) on February 19.

"Today our scenario could be called 'a bad peace is better than a good war.' And we're following it. We learned certain information at the latest NSDC meeting, and it was decided to revisit, look more closely at those five scenarios, and clearly analyze them for compliance with what we have now, de facto," Kuleba said.
