LUGANSK, April 30. /TASS/. The authorities of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) has asked Thursday OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine head Ertugrul Apakan to step up monitoring of Kiev’s observance of ceasefire during the May holidays.
"In connection with the May holidays, we ask you to take under special control [monitoring] the observance of ceasefire by the Ukrainian side along the contact line from April 30 to May 11. From our side, we also guarantee to observe ceasefire," LPR people’s council chairman Alexey Karyakin said.
"LPR citizens treat with great respect and pride the victory of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers in the Great Patriotic War over Nazism in 1945. Many of those who went through the war and those who will never return from battlefields dreamed about peace and preventing such a tragedy in the future. Over the last 70 years, Victory Day celebrations and congratulating veterans in Donbas passed peacefully," Karyakin noted.
