The 15-nation body endorsed the “Package of measures for the implementation of the Minsk Agreements”, adopted on Feb. 12 in Minsk and called for full implementation of the measures, including “a comprehensive ceasefire“.

It also stressed that the resolution of the situation in eastern Ukraine “can only be achieved through a peaceful settlement to the current crisis.” The resolution was adopted shortly after the Council issued a statement to the press on Ukraine, urging all parties to immediately cease hostilities.
