Moscow hopes that within the next few days the ceasefire in Ukraine will be consolidated, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday.
“In speaking of the assessments of how the ceasefire is being observed, we naturally rely on the opinions of the OSCE observers. They aren’t panicking. They do acknowledge that there are some isolated incidents from both sides. However, one senior observer said in an interview that unfortunately this is the usual case at the beginning period of a setting up a ceasefire and bringing the agreement of a ceasefire to life. So, we hope that in the next few days this regime will be consolidated,” Lavrov said during a joint press conference with Malian Foreign Minister Tieman Coulibaly.
Representatives from Ukraine, Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) agreed to a ceasefire between Kiev and Ukrainian independence supporters during the September meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk.
