"The Minsk Agreements are not a shopping list. You can't pick and choose certain provisions of what you want to follow and what you don't want to follow. It has to be adhered to comprehensively," said Michael Bociurkiw, the spokesperson for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.
Since the second ceasefire agreement was signed, there has been slow progress towards implementing all of the agreement's provisions. While both Ukrainian fighting forces and Russian-backed separatists have agreed to the withdrawal of heavy weaponry, neither side has provided a comprehensive list of weapons making a well-monitored withdrawal impossible, said Borciurkiw.
Hromadske International's Nataliya Gumenyuk and guest host Gulliver Cragg spoke with Michael Bociurkiw on Feb. 22, 2015 in the Hromadske studio.
