According to him, Ukraine strictly adheres to the Minsk agreements, and the use of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones was a response to artillery shelling by the Russian occupation forces.
“Wait, I don’t see anything about the violation of the Minsk agreements. Perhaps I did not read it carefully. The Germans called on the parties for restraint, I saw it. And Bayraktar TB2 is not prohibited by the Minsk agreements. We strictly adhere to the Minsk agreements, and the unmanned aerial vehicle was used for the defeat of the Russian artillery, “Aleksey Arestovich continued and added that the
day before, the occupation formations had killed a soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the shelling, and another soldier was wounded.
The speaker of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG also said that there was no exacerbation in the JFO zone, but there was a “separate combat episode” that stopped after the drone fired.
