German Foreign Minister Sees Reduced Violence in Ukraine

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Violence in eastern Ukraine has reduced significantly since a cease-fire deal was agreed in Minsk, Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Monday during a visit to Romania.

"A clear beginning was made," he said, according to a Romanian interpreter. "There's a significant reduction of violence after hardships at the beginning. Today, we don't have hundreds of breaches of the cease-fire, there are not many question marks regarding it."

Russia and Ukraine have agreed to double the number of OSCE observers to 1,000 from 500 to monitor a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, Steinmeier had said on Friday.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
