MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. Donbass is facing a rather volatile situation which needs an urgent interference of the international community keen on the conflict de-escalation, the spokesman for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic’s (DPR) Defence Ministry said on Saturday.
"The Ukrainian side is doing everything possible, on an incredibly regular basis, in order to disrupt the Minsk agreements," Eduard Basurin said. "We call on the international community and all the sides involved in the negotiation process to increase a direct political pressure on Ukraine’s government and to secure fulfilment of the Minsk agreements by official Kiev."
The DPR believes that there is no alternative to a political solution to the conflict and "all the attempts to disrupt the peace process should have an international evaluation," he said.
"We also call on the Ukrainian authorities to launch a full-fledged dialogue with the DPR and to proceed from the fact that the only civilised way out is a political settlement of all contradictions," Basurin said.
