President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to the escalation of armed conflict in Donbas and turned to the Russian leaders and militants. He uploaded the respective address on Facebook.

'I'd like to address the leaders of the Russian Federation and the command of its occupant forces in Donbas. Conflict escalation in Donbas does not make any good background for resuming Minsk talks. We don't need to be reminded of the opportunity of escalation of your aggression', he said.
