Foreign Minister Steinmeier on the situation in eastern Ukraine

21.09.2015 - Press release

Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier issued the following statement on the situation in eastern Ukraine this morning (21 September) while in Bangladesh on an official visit:

I appeal urgently to Kyiv and Moscow not to put the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine back in jeopardy at this critical time. The laying down of arms has not really been secured yet; the conflict still has potential to escalate again in the form of military hostilities. What we therefore need now is implementation of the agreement on withdrawing weaponry from the front lines which was concluded at our Normandy Format meeting on 12 September.
