“If President Zelensky does not do everything for it (peacemaking in Donbas, - 112.international), it will not take place. Because this peace is beneficial, first of all, for us as it is the territory of Ukraine and there are the citizens of Ukraine. It will be impossible to achieve peace without the willingness and constant actions from the side of the president,” Tymoshenko noted.
He reminded that in Donbas, the ceasefire is keeping for four months; however, there are facts of the death of the military men and sporadic attacks. However, in comparison with the previous years of war, the number of these casualties and attacks decreased significantly. Moreover, Ukraine succeeded to return home the great number of prisoners, including movie director Oleg Sentsov.
Deputy Head also underlined that the Ukrainian authorities restore the country, infrastructure, reconstruct roads for achieving peace and reintegration in the temporarily occupied territories to provide the people in uncontrolled territories the example of how it is possible to live in Ukraine.
Earlier, Head of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG Leonid Kravchuk stated that the Joint Action Plan, prepared by the Ukrainian side for the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), contains a proposal on the full and complete cessation of the conflict in Donbas and the demilitarization of certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in early 2021 in order to create all necessary conditions for holding local elections there on March 31, 2021.
