Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov is surprised with "unwillingness" of Kyiv to stop transport blockade of trade with occupied territories of Donbas. In this way Peskov commented on militants' ultimatum to seize the Ukrainian enterprises in Donbas in the case of the continuation of blockade. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
"In this case, the inability or unwillingness of Kyiv to get rid of this blockade, of course, causes bewilderment," Peskov said.
As reported earlier, militants demanded before to lift the blockade of Donbas until March 1, threatening to seize Ukrainian enterprises and stop supplying coal in Ukraine. This was declared by the leaders of “DPR” and “LPR” Alexander Zakharchenko and Ihor Plotnitsky.
And coordinator of the headquarters of “blockade of trade with the occupants” and the Second Commander of “Donbas” battalion Anatoliy Vynhorodsky called militants’ threat to seize Ukrainian enterprises a robbery attempt.
