On September 2, the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin commented on the recent meeting of the contact group to resolve the conflict in Donbass in the videoconference mode.
According to the Head of the DPR delegation at negotiations of the contact group in Minsk, this meeting was convened in order to consolidate the positive progress of the negotiation process.
“The videoconference was convened to consolidate the success that dealt with the question of the ceasefire on September 1. We have a positive experience of last year when relative truce was reached for a sufficiently long period.
We agreed on a permanent ceasefire, but if no political compromises are reached, then, unfortunately, we will again slide back to such a bombardment that we have seen on the eve of September. By virtue of what we continue to insist that there is no alternative to the Minsk agreements,” Denis Pushilin said.
