Chairman of Donetsk Regional City Administration Pavlo Zhebrivskyi said that the local population of Donbas sees the hope for the return of Ukraine to the occupied territories. He said this in the air of 112 Ukraine TV Channel.
"They're waiting for Ukraine in Donetsk. They now have the hope that Ukraine will be there. It's very reassuring. When the negotiations entered a deadlock, people in Donetsk, Yenakiivo, Makiivka and Torez had such a decadent mood. Today, they continue to have the feeling that the situation will change", Zhebrivskyi says.
He also said that the border control by the armed OSCE mission, and not Ukrainian law enforcement was a serious compromise on the part of Kyiv.
