Kremlin did not agree on ceasefire in Donbas as they are ‘not part of this conflict’
According to Ukrainian intelligence, it was Moscow to ask militants to stop attacks
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin's administration said they did not promise Germany to adhere to the ceasefire in the Donbas region as they are "not a party to the conflict", and Ukraine fights with the so called "armed forces of Donbas" in the Eastern part. The Press Secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov announced this in Moscow at a press conference, Unian reports.
"There is a ceasefire, which is broken, but Moscow cannot promise anything, because Russia is not a party to the conflict, Moscow cannot declare a ceasefire state", Peskov said.
Peskov added that on the one side of the demarcation line there are the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the armed forces of Donbas on the other.
Recall that German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier declared the ceasefire from the night of September 15 that will last a week. He said that if the truce will last until next Tuesday, September 20, the parties to the conflict will begin to discuss the withdrawal of troops and weapons.
Earlier it was reported that the General Staff of the Russian Federation ordered the Russian occupation forces, positioned at the temporarily occupied territories of the east of Ukraine, to stop violating the ceasefire state at 00:00 on September 15.
In turn, the militants from Luhansk and Donetsk regions also proclaimed the ceasefire state from 00:00 on 15 September.
