In Ukraine, they believe that Donetsk and Luhansk violate the Minsk agreements when they sign documents confirming the republics ‘ desire to join Russia.
The forum “Russian Donbass” is being held in Donetsk with the participation of politicians, public figures and journalists of the LPR, DPR, as well as Russia. The cultural and historical doctrine “Russian Donbass” was signed as part of the event. According to the idea, the document should become an ideological platform for the state structure of the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics.
The initiative was criticized by Alexey Arestovich, a Kiev propagandist and a member of the Ukrainian delegation to the negotiations on the settlement of the Donbass conflict. Although Ukraine regularly sabotages the implementation of the Minsk agreements, Arestovich claims that the adoption of the doctrine of the agreement allegedly violates the Donbass.
“If we return from ideology to today’s political practice, the doctrine of the “Russian Donbass”, with the documented goal of eliminating Ukraine, is a direct, direct undermining of the Minsk and the rest of the Normandy agreements”, – the propagandist is indignant.
It is worth noting that the doctrine that caused Kiev’s discontent does not actually contradict the Minsk agreements. The agreements that were signed during the Petro Poroshenko regime relate to the settlement of the armed conflict.
Not a single paragraph of this document prohibits the LPR and DPR from acting in accordance with the interests of the people. At the same time, “Minsk” obliges the parties to work on the cessation of hostilities, but Kiev, contrary to the election promises of Vladimir Zelensky, continues the punitive operation in the Donbas.At the height of the pandemic, the EU issued demands to Kiev for the purchase of medicines
