The armed conflict in the Donbass is not frozen. About this in Facebook said the Minister Stepan Poltorak.
“Every day in the East die and people suffer. Direct control of the actions of the militants provided by the military personnel of the Russian Federation. Example said – the recent arrest Ageeva – military personnel of the armed forces of the aggressor. Concern conducting the Russian exercise Zapad-2017. We do not exclude the possibility of provocations on the part of Russia under far-fetched pretexts”, – said Poltorak.
According to him, under such circumstances, Ukraine has to ensure its defenses.
“Note the constructive work of the expert group and the special representative of the USA in Ukraine Kurt Volker during a visit. The international community should fairly and objectively assess the events in Eastern Ukraine and support us in our efforts to defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty,” – said Poltorak.
On 23 July, the US special envoy Kurt Volker has called the conflict in the Donbass “hot war”.
