MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. Ukraine's southeast is not occupied by Russia, but rather a civil war continues to rage on there, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"It (Ukraine's southeast) is not occupied by Russia, Russia is not occupying any territories," he told reporters on Tuesday. "It is Ukraine's internal conflict. I call a spade a spade and it is a civil war, which Ukraine only can stop."
Kiev can stop the war by acting in line with implementation of the Minsk agreements, he added. This was his response to a question about the attitude to Ukraine’s bill, which may label Donbass a territory, occupied by Russia.
