WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States declassifies as much information as it can to support allegations that Russia has provided military support to independence supporters in eastern Ukraine, the US State Department said in a press briefing on Friday.

“We declassify as much information as we can; we provide as much information as we can,” State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, noting that the US regularly stays in touch and provides information to the Organization For Cooperation In Europe (OSCE).

Psaki made the statement in response to a question on whether the United States would provide evidence as demanded by Russia to back up the allegations against Moscow.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Friday he would demand an emergency meeting of the European Council, if bilateral ceasefire is not implemented in eastern Ukraine on Sunday, according to a statement on the presidential website. - Sputnik International

OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier said on Friday he had not seen any Russian Army units in Ukraine’s southeast.

The United States, Ukraine, various European countries, NATO and “a range of officials around the world,” Psaki said, claim that there is a Russian-backed military buildup to support the independence supporters in eastern Ukraine.

On Thursday, the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine struck a deal in the Belarussian capital of Minsk to implement a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine that aims to pave the way for a political settlement of the Ukraine crisis.

An earlier Minsk agreement ceasefire signed in September broke down as fighting erupted between the government forces and the independence supporters, who expanded the areas under their control. More than 5,300 people have been killed in nearly 9 months of fighting in eastern Ukraine, according to the United Nations.
