MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes that the remarks by head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Alexander Zakharchenko, about the possibility of liberating part of the Donbass region from Ukrainian troops by military means are out of tune with the Minsk agreements.
"Of course, such statements are not in line with the Minsk agreements," Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Friday. "On the other hand, unfortunately, this could be the emotional background, which accompanies the tensions we can see along the separation line and which emerged after the aggressive actions by the Ukrainian armed forces and individual units."
Zakharchenko earlier said that the Donbass militias are ready to liberate areas controlled by Kiev by military means if that cannot be done by political means. "We have always said that the liberation of the occupied territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions is our collective task," he noted. "We have always said that it is desirable to do that by political means. If they do not understand that, let me remind them that we can do that by military means as well."
