Petro Poroshenko and Angela Merkel discussed the development of the situation in the Donbas, particularly significant accumulation of military presence and heavy armament that comes from the Russian border.
According to Petro Poroshenko, recent events demonstrate that the representatives of the so-called DPR and LPR refuse to fulfill the Minsk agreements and that there is an absence of progress in the fulfillment of these agreements by Russia.
Angela Merkel emphasizes that the Minsk agreements should be fully complied with by all the parties. She also assured that the situation in Ukraine would become one of the most important issues during the G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia on November 15-16.
The interlocutors also discussed humanitarian aid for the Donbas people and the issue of energy security.
