The Ambassador called an important aspiration of the Ukrainian government in the future to establish contact with the inhabitants of those territories of Donbas that are not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. According to him, these transmitters must have " importance in the response of the Ukrainian authorities on the information war of the Kremlin, which Russia carries out in the East of Ukraine ", informs the Ukrainian Agency. We emphasize, Moscow has stated many times that not privy to the events in the South-East of Ukraine, not a party to domestic conflict and is interested in Ukraine overcame political and economic crisis. In the capital of Russia emphasize that all the charges against her are unproven. The situation in Ukraine to the events in Donbas has led to criticism even among Ukrainian correspondents.
