Gerashchenko: "Militants don't allow Red Cross to search for missing people in Donbas"

"On June 8, the Senate of the French Republic will hold the debate on the resolution on the lifting sanctions against Russia, which some pro-Kremlin French deputies are offering to remove. We talked about the sanctions, the implementation of the Minsk agreements, visa-free regime. French senator repeated the message about the elections in Donbas (in the context of importance of decentralization): offered to Mr. Leconte to come on such an election as observer and asked who among European politicians still willing to come as the observer to the occupied territory, where there are tens of thousands of armed men, when the cities are larded with Russian weapons. We advocate for decentralization, but only after the demilitarization. For the elections, but against the farce of militants called "elections", - wrote Gerashchenko.

She noted that the elections can take place only after the establishment of a stable regime of silence, disarmament and the withdrawal of foreign troops, according to OSCE standards and Ukrainian legislation.
