“Poroshenko’s statement is absurd,” Borodai said. “He says he is stepping up his military operation now and mopping up the border, after which our people’s guard must disarm itself voluntarily and without any prior conditions.”
“It’s really strange that Mr. Poroshenko didn’t mention one more thing right away, namely, that after the disarmament the DPR fighters will have to march in columns to the Ukrainian filtration camps,” Borodai said.
“Unlike Poroshenko who proposes an unconditional surrender, the Donetsk People’s Republic has one condition, namely, an immediate pullout of Ukraine’s occupation army from the territory of our republic,” he said.
“The shelling of Sloviansk from heavy guns and Grad multiple launch systems began just a few hours after that,” he said.
Borodai also said that Donbass miners might join the ranks of volunteer guardsmen soon.
DPR Minister of Coalmines, Konstantin Kuznetsov, said Wednesday at a miners’ meeting of protest against the war that “the coalminers give forty-eight hours for stopping the so-called antiterrorist operation.”
“If this doesn’t happen, they will take up arms to defend their homeland, their wives and children,” Kuznetsov said.
“The peace plan begins with my order on a unilateral ceasefire,” Ukraine’s newly elected president said. “Immediately after that support to it should be given by all the parties involved in the events in Donbass. Within a very brief period of time.”
“The duration of the ceasefire will be very short and disarmament of all the illegal paramilitary formations as well as putting things into order across the region should be effectuated within its bracket,” Poroshenko said.
