The situation in the Donbas is tense, a real cease-fire.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that the real termination of the day in the Donbass no. He said this at a joint press conference with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel in Kiev on Wednesday evening, January 3.

“I’m very in detail told to Sigmar, what is the current situation. It is very stressful. We have no real ceasefire. Only in the last days we had more than 60 shootings, more than a third of them from the banned weapons. We lost three of our soldiers, 15 wounded,” – said Klimkin.

According to the head of the foreign Ministry, the special monitoring mission of the OSCE is unable to monitor the situation on the controlled by the Ukrainian government territories of Donbass.

“Russia continues the tactic of controlled escalation in the Donbas. We see it not only attacks, but also by the fact that the OSCE is not able to control what happens in the occupied territories”, – said Klimkin.

Recall that the illegal armed groups carried out six attacks of positions of forces of ATO on Wednesday, two soldiers were slightly injured.
