Ukraine refused to use the coordination mechanism for responding to violations agreed on July 22 as part of measures to strengthen the ceasefire. Thus, all additional measures were destroyed by the Ukrainian side.
We have always proceeded, and did not hide that interaction within the framework of the coordination mechanism should be carried out by all available means, including joint consideration of violations and joint inspections.
Today, Ukraine has disavowed this agreement, thereby destroying the entire package of additional measures, turning the agreed measures themselves into a purely declarative document, without any mechanism for monitoring the implementation.
We regret the position of the Ukrainian side, because of which the entire package of measures will have to be reconciled.
