MOSCOW, July 04, /ITAR-TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) did not understand Petro Poroshenko’s decision to unilaterally end the ceasefire in southeast Ukraine, Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for International Affairs, said in interview with the Russia 24 TV news channel on Friday.
The OSCE was absolutely bewildered by the Ukrainian president’s decision and expressed full misunderstanding of Poroshenko’s actions.
“Despite the fact that Kiev is constantly portraying itself as a victim of some non-existent intervention or aggression, Ukraine is still a country that was the first to resume the military hostilities,” Pushkov stressed.
“Sacrificial motives” were constantly present in a speech by Ukrainian delegation at the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Baku.
“They constantly appealed to Europe and trans-Atlantic opinion, saying they were victims of a Russian aggression,” Pushkov explained.
But Kiev is far from being a victim. “Kiev is an active participant in an operation against armed men but also against civilians,” Pushkov said.
The OSCE, Germany, France and many other European countries did not perceive the unilateral end of truce.
The truth about southeast Ukraine is starting to leak into the West largely thanks to the Internet, Pushkov said.
