Head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on Donbas Leonid Kravchuk has said Ukraine is not ready to liberate Russia-occupied Donbas by military means.

"I am not raising the issue of returning territories by military means. At least in the near future," he told the RBC Ukraine news agency.

Kravchuk also noted sanctions were another effective way of leverage.

"The sanctions will be expanded and become more diverse so that Russia could feel that not everything is forgiven to the aggressor. The aggressor must be held accountable," he added.
