He claims that the actions of the Ukrainian army in no way violate the Minsk agreements. This sounds rather strange when you consider that the agreements signed in Minsk do not provide for any movement of troops in the so-called 30-kilometer gray zone.

If the first took place under the auspices of the Security Service of Ukraine, then the second passed the leadership from the Security Service of Ukraine to the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
