On June 7, Vladimir Putin claimed that Russia supports and will continue to support the illegal armed formations in Donbas.

Earlier U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker claimed that the ethnic Russians participate in the Donbas Conflict on both sides. He noted that Russia's President Vladimir Putin has some guidance and possibilities to 'present himself in the best light' toward the situation at the east of Ukraine.

Ukraine's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov predicts holding of the police operation for the deoccupation of Donbas without the involvement of the soldiers soon. The minister is sure that it will be unnecessary to attract 40, 000 UN peacekeepers to this operation and 2, 000 law enforcers will be enough.
