NATO concerned about use of heavy weapons by occupiers in eastern Ukraine.

NATO Allies are deeply concerned about ceasefire violations and the use of heavy weapons by Russian-backed militants in eastern Ukraine.

This was said in a statement posted on the NATO website following a meeting between NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană and Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksii Reznikov at NATO headquarters on May 27.

“In their meeting, Mr. Geoană expressed Allies’ deep concern over the ceasefire violations and the use of heavy weapons by the Russia-backed militants in Donbas. He further expressed Allies’ strong support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the report reads.

Addressing Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration, Mr. Geoană expressed Allies’ support for Ukraine’s aspirations, and urged Ukraine to keep its focus on systemic reforms. He also said that he looked forward to holding a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission soon.

As reported, Reznikov paid a two-day visit to Brussels for meetings with representatives of the European Commission and NATO.
