DONETSK, April 20. /TASS/. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres' proposal for a "humanitarian truce" for the safe delivery of humanitarian aid is potentially dangerous, as the Ukrainian side always uses the ceasefire to regroup its forces and reinforce its positions. At the same time, Russia has been able to ensure the regular delivery of humanitarian aid to the Donbass, Denis Pushilin, head of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), told TASS.
"Calls by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres for a 'humanitarian truce' for the safe delivery of humanitarian aid are bewildering," he said.
"Ukraine has been willing to kill civilians, destroy our homes, hospitals, schools, deprive us of our rights and freedoms as much as it wants, but in no way does it care about 'saving lives.' The Ukrainian regime does not care about this issue even now," the DPR head pointed out, "Given the amount of aid from the Russian Federation, delivered safely, continuously and without allowing Ukraine's armed forces to regroup, there is no point in the potentially dangerous actions Mr. UN Secretary General suggests us."
