The Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the permanent plenipotentiary representative of the DPR in the Contact group at negotiations in Minsk Denis Pushilin commented on Pavel Zhebrivsky’s statement on written guarantee of preservation of ceasefire by the Russian side in the Joint Center on Control and Coordination of issues related to the ceasefire regime and the stabilization of the situation.
According to Denis Pushilin, incorrect statements of the Ukrainian side on the guarantee for ceasefire, allegedly given by Russian officials in the JCCC, are other attempts to present the Russian Federation as the third side of the conflict in Donbass.
ʺKiev is trying to make the Russian Federation the third side of the conflict, which is not true. In fact, the Russian side only calls upon us to ensure the ceasefire. In fact, to promise or not to promise, the Russian side is not able,ʺ the envoy said.
According to Denis Pushilin, possibility of ambiguous form of words is associated with absence of representatives of Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics in the Joint Center on Control and Coordination of issues related to the ceasefire regime and the stabilization of the situation, whose participation was originally envisaged by the idea of creating of the JCCC.
