EU says escalation in eastern Ukraine violates Minsk peace deal

A column of Ukrainian forces stops for a rest not far from eastern Ukrainian city of Artemivsk, in the Donetsk region, June 8, 2015Mounting attacks in government-held areas of eastern Ukraine violate a February peace deal with pro-Russian separatists, the EU said Tuesday. “The renewed escalation of the conflict… as a result of attacks on several government-controlled areas today … violates the spirit and the letter of the Minsk Agreements,” the EU’s External Action Service said in a statement, referring to the accord signed in the capital of Belarus. The EU’s diplomatic arm condemned an arson attack Sunday on armoured vehicles belonging to OSCE truce monitors as well as the fact that the monitors have been caught in the crossfire in Shchastya and Shyrokyne.
