Ukraine: independence real or formal?
What came to the country in 25 years since the proclamation of independence in the compilation of the TASS
“Once again, Kiev is not fulfilled its obligations on the withdrawal of forces and means in the area of Stanitsa Lugansk, despite the parties’ compliance with the main criterion – the lack of fire in the region of the contact line of the parties within seven days,” he said.
Gryzlov noted that “this fact is confirmed by authorized Special monitoring mission of the OSCE .”
In the words of the Ambassador of Russia in the contact group, the OSCE observers have recorded the last case of violation of the “regime of silence” on March 31, the withdrawal of forces to implement 6 or 7 of April, but Kyiv voluntarily determines when it reached a cease-fire or not. “With this attitude to its obligations it will be very hard to achieve results. Another breakdown shows who is really responsible for the lack of progress in the field of security in the Donbass”, – said Gryzlov.
At the last meeting of the contact group on settling the situation in Eastern Ukraine, held on 29 March in Minsk, the parties once again returned to the question of creating security zones and designated breeding forces near Stanitsa Lugansk on April 6. But on the eve of the Ukrainian side refused to commit to the challenge, citing the fact that breeding is only possible subject to maintaining a complete cease-fire for seven days, which must be verified Special monitoring mission of the OSCE.
