Klimkin reminded that one of the most important articles of the Minsk declaration is creation of a buffer zone from which all the heavy artillery, 100-mm-caliber or higher, is withdrawn. "The process will be comprehensively controlled by the OSCE monitoring mission. We are currently holding intensive consultations on how the OSCE can fully realize its tasks," he said.

"The second important point is that we will use all technical means of control over this process, and we will be also assisted by satellites and other equipment to ensure that we have a real picture," he said.
