Continued military operation in east Ukraine may lead to a humanitarian catastrophe, Russian permanent representative in the OSCE said.
“We are quite concerned that (Ukrainian president) Poroshenko’s plans to continue the military operation may just result in a humanitarian catastrophe,” he noted.
According to Mykhailo Koval, Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, “the president has approved the detailed plan, which completely envisages all the stages of liberating our and from these people, who are destabilizing the situation there”.
The Security Council’s representative noted that amid the resuming of the active phase of the military operation in the east “in fact, the entire border (with Russia) was blocked from possibilities to bring heavy armory to the territory of Ukraine from abroad”.
