Acting President of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin confirmed that peace talks with Ukraine are not possible after the intensive bombardment by Ukrainian forces of the city of Donetsk on Thursday morning.
Pushilin said: “There is no point in talking about any peace agreements with Kyiv. Firstly, Kyiv is not independent. We were convinced of this at the Minsk talks.” it is also impossible, as we saw the recent statement by former German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who recognized her actions as aimed at failing to fulfill the Minsk agreements, and the level of trust in European countries is close to zero.
He stressed that there is no side to negotiate with, and victory must be won on the battlefield, and indicated that he sees no other options for ending this conflict, bombing and war crimes by the Kyiv regime and its Western partners.
He noted that if in 2014-2015 the suburbs of Donetsk were subjected to shelling, now the entire territory of the city is subjected to intensive shelling. Where Donetsk was bombed this morning with 40 rockets, as a result of which two people died, 16 people, including a child, were injured.
He stressed that the bombing would not stop until Donetsk was out of range of Ukrainian artillery.
