Zakharchenko: “The DNR won’t Allow Kiev to Instigate a New Outbreak of Fighting in the Donbass”


Today, at a press conference in the Donetsk, DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko said:

The DNR won’t allow Kiev to instigate a new outbreak of fighting in the Donbass. The situation on the demarcation line is grim. The only chance for Poroshenko to stay in power is a new outbreak of hostilities. The purpose of that would be to break the Minsk agreements. We won’t allow that. If needed, our armed forces will respond in kind.

Earlier, on 22 March, in a live broadcast to those living in junta-occupied areas of the DNR, Zakharchenko stated that the probability of a resumption of full-scale hostilities by junta forces in the Donbass is extremely high. At the same time, he emphasised that the Minsk-2 agreement is the only way to stop a war unleashed by the Kiev junta. At the Minsk negotiations themselves, the DNR negotiators repeated noted that the junta’s representatives deliberately delayed negotiations and avoided signing previous-agreed measures for a peaceful settlement.
