He said that the Russian-backed militants return the weaponry , which had been earlier withdrawn, to the buffer area on the eve of May 9 . "The explanation doesn't withstand any criticism: they are allegedly preparing to the parade and carry out military exercise. Agreements must be fulfilled and all the weaponry must be withdrawn in a matter of hours," Petro Poroshenko noted.

"Any rotation, format transformation or retreat from the Minsk agreements is inadmissible," the president said.

"Neither Ukraine, nor our international partners accept the revision of the Minsk agreements. We persistently demand signatories to the Minsk agreements, first of all Russia, to make every effort for the agreements to be fully implemented," the Head of State emphasized.
