Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia will not leave Donbas. This topic was discussed during his meeting with the chief editors of the Russian media, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

"I see some people who were injured and mutilated, especially children in Donbas ... We will not leave Donbas, no matter what," Putin stressed.

At the same time, he added that before making any decision, you need to think about the consequences of any step.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine denies Russia's mediating role in resolving the conflict in Donbas, since this country itself takes part in it. This is stated in the commentary of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry in connection with the latest statements by the Russian Foreign Ministry regarding the situation in Donbas.

"The Russian military presence in the occupied part of Donbas continues to this day. Illegal crossing of  uncontrolled segment of the Ukrainian-Russian state border in order to strengthen and rotate the armed forces of the Russian Federation has become a constant practice ... Documentary and other evidence of the role and direct Russia's participation in an armed conflict against Ukraine are transferred and will continue to be transferred by the Ukrainian side to international jurisdictional institutions. Therefore, the insistence of Russian officials about the allegedly “mediating” role in the peace process in Donbas is outrageous," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
