MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. Russian and French members of parliament could make a joint visit to Donbass in order to see the situation in southeastern Ukraine with their own eyes, Chairman of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs Leonid Slutsky said.

While addressing a Russian-French inter-parliamentary seminar, he said that "the situation in southeastern Ukraine is a very sensitive matter which requires your assistance." "We invite you to go there. I believe, the authorities of both the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic will invite us to make a visit," Slutsky added.

At the same time, he said that the actions Kiev had been taking in the region "cannot be described by any human definitions." "The situation there is very serious. We need to cooperate with you for the sake of the people living in southeastern Ukraine, so that Europe and the entire world finally understand what is going on there," the senior Russian lawmaker noted.

He also said that "first and foremost, it is necessary to ensure the ceasefire in Donbass." "Although Kiev has been repeatedly declaring ceasefires, the Ukrainian military does not abide by them. On the contrary, military activities have been intensifying," Slutsky pointed out.

A French parliamentary delegation headed by member of the National Assembly (lower house of the French parliament) Thierry Mariani is currently on a three-day visit to Russia upon Slutsky’s invitation.
