DONETSK, October 16. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko’s statements on Kiev’s reluctance to fulfill the political points of the Minsk Agreements can be assessed as a refusal of peaceful settlement, head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexander Zakarchenko said on Sunday.
At the meeting with heads of ministries, departments and local administrations, Zakharchenko said: "Today we held drills connected with two things. Firstly, it is the acute escalation on the contact line. Secondly, it is the statement made by Pyotr Alekseyevich Poroshenko, in which he completely cancelled the Minsk Agreements and basically opened the new spiral of military actions."
Poroshenko said earlier that Kiev refuses to implement the political part of the Minsk Agreements until the issue of ensuring security in the region is resolved, despite the fact that the sequence of steps in the process is fixed in the roadmap.
