KIEV, June 30, /ITAR-TASS/. The no-use-of-force arrangements for Ukraine's east, the arrangements, which President Pyotr Poroshenko last Friday extended for 72 hours, expire at 23:00, Moscow time, on Monday. His further steps are unknown so far.
Earlier Poroshenko stated that, along with the peace plan, he also had available a certain Plan"B". "We consider various options: a peaceful scenario, or Plan 'A', but we also have available a Plan 'B'. For those who hope to avail themselves of the ceasefire to gain time and regroup their forces, we also have a Plan 'B', and they should know this. I shall not go into details of the Plan because I consider that our peaceful plan will work," the president said.
The Plan B has been interpreted by presidential adviser Yuri Lutsenko. He said if the Volunteer Corps members (VCM) do not down arms in line with Poroshenko's peace plan, the Ukrainian security forces would have to resort precisely to Plan B.
"Plan B is intended for a situation when the VCM will not down arms and will continue to shoot and conduct combat actions against our country. In that case, of course it would be essential to act adequately and destroy those who are ruining the Ukrainian state from the inside," Lutsenko emphasized, expressing hope the "matters willl not go such lengths".
