KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. Kiev authorities are to blame for inflaming military conflict in Ukraine’s south-east, Sergey Kaplin, a deputy from President Petro Poroshenko's Bloc, said on Ukrainian television on Wednesday.

Responsibility lays with Oleksandr Turchinov, National Security and Defense Council Secretary, and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, he said in a statement assessed as indicating growing contradictions between Poroshenko and positions taken by the other two politicians.

"It is easy to blame Russia’s president for firing up military action in Donbas but it is time to tell people the truth," Kaplin said.

"Responsibility for unleashing the war rests with those who came to power after President Yanukovych's overthrow. They are to blame for war in Donbas today. They are Yatsenyuk and Turchinov," said Kaplin, interviewed on Ukraine's TBi channel.

"War could have been stopped there but that would have been against their interests. Ukrainian people keep being killed," he said.
