MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) special envoy to Ukraine Heidi Tagliavini has promised to solve the problem of food blockade of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), DPR envoy to Contact Group Denis Pushilin said on Monday.
"Today, I talked to Ms Tagliavini. I informed her about the difficult situation with supplying food to the republic. She said that she will try to solve this problem fast and efficiently," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Pushilin as saying.
Earlier, Pushilin said Kiev is exacerbating the economic blockade of Donbas. "Long queues with food are standing at checkpoints on our territory. No trucks with food supplies were allowed to enter DPR today," he noted.
The Ukrainian authorities are currently drafting a list of individuals and cargoes that are allowed through checkpoints. "This list, which is currently under development in Mariupol, does not include any companies or organizations supplying food to retail chains or other stores," Pushilin stressed. "This directly leads to deterioration of the humanitarian situation and a number of other problems that in fact go against the Minsk agreements," he added.
No trucks with food supplies were allowed to enter DPR today, Pushilin noted.
