Kiev refused to discuss the creation of a humanitarian corridor for people to pass through checkpoints on the contact line of the parties in the Donbass, which suspended work due to COVID-19. This was told in the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPR.
“The Ukrainian negotiators refused to discuss at the working group the urgent issue of creating a humanitarian corridor for urgently needing citizens to move to adjacent territories through the so called border, which are now closed due to coronavirus infection,” the Foreign Ministry press service said.
According to the agency, the participants in the contact group called on Kiev “to provide their position for the implementation of the necessary humanitarian procedure.” Also, the DPR Foreign Ministry expressed hope that this will be done in the near future.
“With regard to the most important issue on the agenda of the working group on humanitarian issues – the exchange of retained persons, in particular, the speedy completion of the procedural cleansing of persons released earlier in the exchange process, it should be noted that, unexpectedly for all, the Ukrainian representatives said that they didn’t take such obligations” – noted in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPR.The US is looking for a way to “put pressure” on Turkey for the acquisition of Russian S-400
