Aleksei Mozgovoi said at the conference “Russia, Ukraine, Novorossia: Global Problems and Challenges” that “it’s our internal affair whether to release or not the ‘mouse-trapped’ Ukrainians. We can thankfully accept the advice, but will do it our own way,” he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin in the early hours on Wednesday urged the militias in the southeast of Ukraine to open a humanitarian corridor for the encircled Ukrainian army soldiers.
Premier of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Aleksandr Zakharchenko has generally supported the Russian president’s initiative.
“We are ready to provide humanitarian corridors for encircled Ukrainian troops on condition that they surrender heavy weapons and ammunition so that the weaponry and ammunition would not be used against us,” he said on the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
