Denis Pushilin’s statement on introduction of “Easter truce” in Donbass
The support provided by the Contact Group to the initiative of the Donetsk People’s Republic to introduce the “Easter truce” and the parties’ commitment to the ceasefire regime, as from 30 March 2018, 00:01, give hope for the stabilization of the situation in the Donbass on the eve of the holiday great for all Christians.
Residents of the Donbass on both sides of the contact line should be able to have a holy Easter holiday in peace and quiet. We sincerely hope that the agreements reached earlier on additional measures to comply with the ceasefire, as well as the publication of orders to units of the parties’ armed forces about the non-violation of the ceasefire, the development and application of disciplinary measures against violators will be the guarantee of peace and quiet for citizens on these holy days.
