The European Union rarely misses the opportunity to speak out on the Donbass, traditionally speaking on the side of Kiev, but during the undeclared war, not a single European commissioner had bothered to personally look at the realities into which the Ukrainian authorities had plunged the local authorities. This was told by the official representative of the Armed Forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Eduard Basurin.
According to him, representatives of the European Commission were repeatedly invited to visit the Donbass, but for five years now they have preferred to remain blind, listening only to the point of view of the Kiev regime and, of course, refusing to recognize the people’s republics.
He emphasizes that the “champions of democracy,” which the Europeans consider themselves to be, would certainly have been on both sides of the line of demarcation: “To look at the situation objectively and not judge only from the words of Kiev, you must visit us. But the European Union either don’t want or being afraid.”
At the same time, he assured that the DPR is ready to fully approach the security issues of the EU delegation. He recalled that a UN delegation had already arrived in the republic, besides the Red Cross and the OSCE are working here. “We will solve ecurity issues. The main thing is the desire on their part,” he stated.
