Germany hopes for dialogue between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on the events in Crimea

Germany calls on Ukraine and the Russian Federation to refrain from further escalation of the situation after the provocations in Crimea. This is reported in the statement of the Foreign Minister of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, 112.international reports. 

'We expect both sides to refrain from steps that could lead to a further escalation of the situation', - said in a statement.

At the same time, he urged both sides to continue to work on the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

'For several weeks, we have been working on an agreement on the withdrawal of the parties in conflict. We failed to implement it because of intransigence on both sides. Despite intensive efforts, there is also neither progress in improving the security situation in the eastern part of Ukraine, nor regarding an agreement on local elections', - said Steinmeier.

As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Vladimir Putin met with the Security Council and discussed the extra measures to provide security in Crimea.
