We continue to call on all parties to implement in full the commitments they made under the ceasefire agreement reached in Minsk in September 2014, including the immediate release of all hostages and unlawfully detained persons. We support ongoing negotiations through the Trilateral Contact Group, of which the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is a member, and through the Normandy Format to find a diplomatic solution to the crisis in eastern Ukraine.
