The monitoring mission of the OSCE has received a statement from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) on intention to return to the contact line the artillery, which was withdrawn in compliance with Minsk agreements. Such intension was caused by the deterioration of situation in the east of Ukraine, Vladislav Seleznev, speaker of the AFU General Staff reports.
The possibility of returning the artillery to the original positions results from the provocative actions of militants on the demarcation line, said Seleznev.
“Situation in the antiterrorist operation zone remains complicated. The Ukrainian side has warned the OSCE observers that in case of aggravating conflict, we are ready to return the previously withdrawn artillery to the front line,” the speaker of the AFU General Staff said.
According to him, the Ukrainian military use the weapons which is currently available at their positions. Ukraine intends to get a report of the monitoring mission representatives on the results of the Minsk Agreements execution by terrorists.
“The current developments in the ATO area make it clear that militants have not withdrawn all their weapons from the demarcation line,” said Seleznev.
He also emphasized that provocations and excessive activity of terrorists in the direction of Artemivsk and Donetsk are connected with the immediate proximity of the Ukrainian military to the key centers of separatists, in particular, to Donetsk.
