DUSHANBE, February 27. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has urged Washington to closely study the situation in Ukraine before making any comments following the attack on the OSCE monitoring mission.
"We believe it is essential to be more attentive in judging the situation, in particular when we identify the source of provocative actions," Peskov said in the wake of the US call addressed to Russia for ensuring the proper operation of the OSCE mission in the southeast of Ukraine. "The OSCE monitors have repeatedly stated that the Ukrainian forces are a source of provocative actions."
"We can say for a hundredth time that Russia is by no means a party to that conflict," Peskov said.
The Kremlin is puzzled by Kiev’s unwillingness to end the transport blockade of Donbass, he went on.
"Moscow has been repeatedly pointing out that the transport blockade has been seriously destabilizing the situation and hampering attempts to find a solution to the crisis and stabilize the situation," he said. "On top of all, it prevents us from getting anywhere near the implementation of the Minsk agreements," the Kremlin spokesman said.
Kiev’s inability or unwillingness to put an end to this transport blockade is just puzzling," Peskov noted.
