LUGANSK, February 10 – RIA Novosti. The head of the Kiev delegation to the contact group on Donbass, Leonid Kravchuk, must voice his words about the need to mirror the shelling in Donbass as the official position of Kiev, or abandon these statements, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic said on Wednesday.
Earlier, Kravchuk said that it is necessary to respond to shelling in Donbass in a mirror image – “a shot for every shot.” The head of the LPR Foreign Ministry Vladislav Deinogo said that such a position contradicts the Minsk agreements.
“Whether the statement on Ukraine's refusal to comply with the ceasefire regime is the official position of Ukraine on recognizing Ukraine's withdrawal from measures to strengthen the ceasefire regime that happened in the fall, or is this another fabrication and” private opinion “of Mr. Kravchuk, will be clarified at the next meeting of the contact group on February 17 2021 “, – said in a message on the Telegram channel of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the LPR.
The statement of the LPR Foreign Ministry specifies that Kravchuk will have to “under the OSCE protocol” either confirm these words as the official position of Kiev, or “renounce his public statements.”
