German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said this at a press conference on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
"We are convinced that both sides must immediately return to the ceasefire and stop mutual provocation," Seibert said.
According to him, the German government condemns the use of heavy weapons, which, according to the Minsk agreements, should not be even close to the contact line.
Merkel's spokesman stressed that Berlin demands from both sides an "immediate humanitarian pause" to provide assistance to 20,000 people, especially residents of Avdiyivka, who were left without electricity, heating and water, and requires an immediate access for OSCE observers to Avdiyivka and Yasynuvata.
