“We should devise a system now in which both parties to the conflict will cease fire,” Klimkin said at a press conference summing up outcomes of his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington on July 29.

Klimkin pointed out that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had earlier proposed a peace plan for the eastern part of Ukraine, which includes three key aspects, i.e. the conflict’s de-escalation and a ceasefire, humanitarian aspects, and a political component.

“It is very important now for both parties to cease fire and restore Ukraine’s territorial integrity. We need critical progress: the hostages must be freed as soon as possible, and OSCE monitors should work at the scene of the conflict from the first minutes of a ceasefire,” he said.
