"We know that fighting is still happening. And our appeal is of course for a complete ceasefire, mainly in the context of the recent decisions of the so-called Harvest Ceasefire. We will do everything we can to support different processes that are in place – the Normandy Four, the Trilateral Contact Group, the work of the OSCE," Guterres said during his meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, as quoted by the UNIAN news agency.
The UN secretary-general noted that organization is committed to help the people, who were displaced in the Eastern Ukrainian conflict.
"The capacities of the Secretary General of the United Nations are limited but whatever I will be able to do to support Ukrainian people to be able to have a future peace and prosperity in the context of the territorial integrity and sovereignty and independence of Ukraine is of course something that I fully respect and I am fully committed to," Guterres added.
The "harvest truce," which Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine (Russia, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Ukraine) agreed on June 21, entered into force at midnight on June 24 along the line of contact and will last until the end of August.
