Statements by Alexander Hug leads edition "Ukrainian Truth":
Such a move, which involves reducing the interpositional distance, inevitably leads to even more violence. It is unacceptable that the Ukrainian military took control of settlements in the "gray zone".
First of all, we are talking about the entry of Ukrainian security officials into the settlement of Novoaleksandrovka.
Hug noted that such actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are a direct violation of the Minsk agreements.
Deputy Chairman of the OSCE SMM:
Over the past few years, we have a number of examples from different places along the line of contact that the result of moving forward, closer to the opposing side, is an increased level of prolonged and unpredictable violence.
