PRAGUE, March 12. /TASS/. A sharp decrease in tensions around Crimea’s reunification with Russia on the basis of people’s referendum held last March can be seen all over the world and the top priority task is to ensure a ceasefire in south-eastern Ukraine and to grant a special status of autonomy to the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, Czech President Milos Zeman told TASS on Thursday.
"It is a matter of interest that Crimea was not mentioned in the Minsk-2 agreements," he said underlining that the fact is indicative for understanding the processes in Crimea that the politicians had come to.
"It is of top priority that the civil war raging in east Ukraine will come to an end and that civilians, including children, will not be killed there and that as [Ukraine’s] President Petro Poroshenko said Donetsk and Luhansk will get an autonomy status within the country," Zeman said.
