According to him, the Donbas daily, an increase in the number of weapons and ammunition that are imported by Russian troops.

  • Peacekeepers in the Donbas, Poroshenko announced an important detail

The NSDC Secretary added that until the established control over the border, Russia will continue the war.

Note that the position of Russia and Ukraine at odds in the deployment of peacekeepers. So Kiev wants their imposition on all uncontrolled territory of Donbass, include the Russian-Ukrainian border. Moscow, in turn, is configured only to enter them on the line of contact and for the protection of OSCE observers.

The President also appealed to the UN with a request to enter the mission in the Donbass as soon as possible. In addition, he urged the Secretary-General to send to the Donbass assessment mission of the situation.
