“Everyone is tired of war: both law enforcers and civilians. Therefore, where it is possible to solve the conflict through a dialogue, the Ukrainian authorities are ready to do this,” she is quoted as saying by Ukraine’s UNIAN news agency.
On Wednesday, the Donetsk Regional Council addressed the Kiev authorities urging to stop the military operation and to immediately withdraw units of Ukrainian army to bases. The statement issued by the council’s panel emphasizes that “the operation started upon the state authorities’ decision in the north of Donets region has already led to multiple victims among civilians”.
May 7, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin addressed Kiev officials urging them “to immediately stop all military and punitive operations in Ukraine’s South-East”, which, as he said, are “not a secure way to solve all domestic political disputes”, but, on the contrary, only contribute to the split.
Putin added that Russia is interested in the speediest possible settlement in Ukraine that would take into account the interests of all citizens no matter where they live.
“Russia believes that the crisis that has broken out in Ukraine and is actively evolving by the worst possible scenario is to be blamed on those who organised the state coup in Kiev,” the president noted. He stressed that the masterminds and perpetrators of the coup had not bothered to disarm far-right and nationalist elements in the country.
The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will propose a roadmap on the resolution of the Ukrainian crisis in the nearest time, Swiss President and OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Didier Burkhalter said after talks with President Vladimir Putin.
Key provisions of the roadmap were discussed in Vienna on Tuesday, May 6, and can be stated as follows: ceasefire, de-escalation of tensions, dialogue, and elections.
The OSCE chief said his organisation was prepared to coordinate the implementation of the proposed plan. To this end, he will go to Brussels tonight and maintain close contact with the United Nations and the United States.
