MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Over 100,000 residents of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have signed an address to the United Nations Security Council with a call to pressure Kiev in the issue of implementation of the Minsk Agreements, the Donetsk Republic public movement press service reported Thursday.
"As of today, the petition against violation by the Ukrainian side of the Minsk Agreements has been signed by 110,221 people," a spokesman for the movement said as quoted by the Donetsk News Agency.
On June 1, the heads of the DPR and the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky, announced collection of signatures under the address to the UN Security Council on Kiev’s sabotage of Minsk-2.
The DPR head noted Ukraine’s continuing violations of the regime of cessation of hostilities, the refusal to hold amnesty and protraction of the process of prisoners exchange in line with the all for all formula written down in the Minsk Agreements. In turn, the LPR called to "go into the offensive on the diplomatic front" and "oblige [President Pyotr] Poroshenko to fulfill the commitments undertaken in Minsk."
Participants of the Contact Group on settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine on April 29, 2016 agreed on the occasion of the Orthodox Easter to establish a regular "regime of silence" starting from midnight April 30. But local militias and Kiev’s army keep accusing each other of truce violations.
