On May 4, Russian mercenaries shelled Donbas six times. The Ukrainian military took no casualties.
Holding the direct negotiations with Russian mercenaries of the self-styled "people's republics" of Donbas is a red line for Ukraine. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said so during the HARDtalk show at BBC News World.
"No. It's a red line we won't cross. The President is quite determined here. We all know it is Russia who attacked Ukraine," Kuleba said.
According to him, the Ukrainian side believes that the key to solve the conflict in Donbas is in Moscow, and Ukraine will not talk to the Kremlin's puppets.
