DPR welcomes decision of United Nations Security Council on need to separate forces and means
The Donetsk People’s Republic supports the statement of the United Nations Security Council on the need for the expeditious implementation of the Minsk agreements and settlement of the conflict in Donbass. This was reported by the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the Permanent Plenipotentiary Representative of the DPR in the Contact Group’s negotiations in Minsk Denis Pushilin to the Donetsk News Agency.
ʺThe level of attention to the escalation in Donbass, namely, the statement of the United Nations Security Council in support of the settlement of the conflict, suggests that the situation on the confrontation line has reached a critical point. Indeed, it is necessary to beat the alarm, interference by all sides, which may affect Ukraine in order to put it back on the way of implementation of the Minsk agreements, is needed, – he underlined. – We, in turn, welcome the statement of the United Nations Security Council on the need to separate forces and means and we, for our part, are ready to adhere to itʺ.
He also expressed the hope that the adopted document will have an impact on the leadership of Ukraine, in particular, with regard to the withdrawal of heavy weapons of the AFU from the line of contact. ʺWe hope that everyone, who can have impact on Ukraine, will contribute to this,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
On June 6, the United Nations Security Council adopted the statement condemning cease-fire violation in Donbass and calling for the expeditious implementation of the Minsk agreements. This is the first document of such kind during the conflict in Donbass. The document expresses concern over the deterioration of the situation on the front line. In particular, the Security Council condemned “continuing cease-fire violation, especially the use of heavy weapons banned by the Minsk agreementsʺ.
