Polish Defense Minister criticizes Minsk agreements and their supporters
More and more Ukrainians are falling victims to the Russian aggression in the Donbas region. Moscow's invasion in eastern Ukraine continues despite the Minsk agreements, aimed at ceasing hostilities in the conflict zone.
This is reported by Poland's Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz in an interview with Polish Public broadcaster TVP, according to Radio Poland.
"Every day I get reports, that several persons were killed, several soldiers died, several civilians. It is happening every day. This isn't something out of the ordinary, it's a regular day", the Minister stated.
Macierewicz also commented on the negotiations that take place in Minsk between Ukraine, Russia and the separatists.
"If somebody thinks the Minsk agreements are successful, then they don't notice all the dead Ukrainians", Macierewicz underlined.
Earlier Ukrainian Minister of Defense revealed, 2491 Ukrainian soldiers died over the past two years of the war. And since the start of 2016 both casualties and fatalities have reached 623 as of June 16.
