The Lithuanian minister has noted that Russia is currently preparing the 10th so-called humanitarian convoy, which Ukrainians have no control over.

"We have to discuss the security situation, which is not improving. Frankly, the ceasefire is not working," Linkevičius told Brussels journalists before the summit of EU foreign ministers.

In his words, the Ukrainian government should not delay implementation of key economic reforms.

The ceasefire in Eastern Ukraine, where Ukrainians are fighting the Russian-supported separatists, was announced following the negotiations in Minsk back in September. However, the situation remains tense.
