According to the Deputy Foreign Minister, Russia continues to show contempt for its obligations under the international agreements. "As a result, Ukrainians face a campaign of terror and cultural destruction," she said.
Zerkal noted that the situation had worsened over last few weeks: "Russian-backed armed groups again stepped up attacks and intimidation of the civilian population. The independent OSCE monitoring mission confirmed that at least 8 civilians had been killed and another 30 had been wounded in the Ukrainian town of Avdiivka just during one week, from January 29 to February 5, 2017."
"The attacks on Ukrainian civilians are the logical result of Russia's support for terrorist groups," Zerkal said.
