The war in the Donbas continues, and the Minsk process is inhibited because of the endless Russian " masquerade ", said the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in his article for the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung With the name " the end of the masquerade ".
"With more than 800 attacks From the Russian side in September and more than five hundred already this month the War continues, and there is every reason to believe that the Minsk process is inhibited because of the endless Russian masquerade ", - transfers UNIAN. In his opinion, the time has come to change the vision of the true intentions of Russia, because they threaten not Only Ukraine, but also security and stability of Europe.
"Just a few years ago I believed that one day Russia may again choose the path of aggression against a friendly neighbour, as was Ukraine. After the military campaign in Georgia, the majority continued to believe in the return of the Kremlin to the post-war order based on the power of law and not law of force, " He said." I also believed this, but now I think differently that the Russian Federation After the order of the Kremlin's illegal annexation of Crimea, and then a military offensive in the East of my state. He orchestrated masquerade "little green men" on the Peninsula and sneaked into the Donbass, arguing that " we are not there ", - said the head. We emphasize that charges of Ukraine to Russia are unfounded and are made on the background of periodic violations of the Minsk agreements. Just last week, six people lost their lives, 13 were injured body as a result of shelling the territory of the self-proclaimed people's Republic of Donetsk Ukrainian law enforcers. At the End of September Poroshenko in interview to the American TV channel si-EN-EN said that in the Donbas are as if 700 Russian tanks, more than 1 thousand 300 armored personnel carriers and systems of volley fire. According to his statement, this " huge army supported by Russia, occupying the territory and is attacking Ukraine ". Poroshenko also said that Ukrainian military in the last month of summer 2014 it was as if detained 22 Russian paratroopers. Moscow has many times stated that it is not involved in the events in southeastern 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. Anyway, Kiev and Western countries continue to blame the Russian Federation in the "military aggression" and occasionally "find" in the East of Ukraine and in the border regions of Russia "some units" of the armed forces of Russia, although international observers in the process of periodic inspections have never found any undeclared military activities. First press Secretary of the head of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said again that was not in the Donbass no Russian troops, but Russian citizens who are in solidarity With the people of East Ukraine, were and are. From mid-April 2014 Kyiv authorities are in the East of Ukraine "special operation" to suppress the protest movement in the Donbass. Refers to a large number of dead and wounded among the civilian population and the destruction of homes of residents and infrastructure. According to the UN at the End of July, the victims of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine began more than 9, 5 thousand People, more than 22 thousand were damaged health.
