The so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) claims that the adoption of the law on Donbas reintegration by the Ukrainian Parliament will turn to the escalation of the armed Donbas Conflict. Oleksandr Zakharchenko, the leader of the DPR pro-Russian militants claimed this as Donetsk News Agency reported.
Zakharchenko claimed that the document is the violation of the Minsk Agreements and disrupts the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
'This law will untie hands of the Ukrainian military. All that they could not do earlier is available for them on the so-called 'legal' grounds. It completely violates the Minsk Agreements. Ukraine intends to make war and creates the legal platform for this', Zakharchenko claimed.
As we reported the Ukrainian parliament adopted as a whole the bill on the state policy aiming to secure the sovereignty of Ukraine over the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions on January 18. 280 MPs voted 'for'.
