The participants of the Donbas blockade announce about their refusal to negotiate with the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman. This was stated by the trade blockade headquarters.
“The headquarters announce that we won’t be negotiating with the Prime Minister of Ukraine any longer. The headquarters of the blockade call for the patriots of Ukraine to come to help the redoubts’ garrisons and plans to immediately expand the geography of the blockade, blocking the highways where streams of bloody trade still remain,” the statement said.
They explained their decision by the alleged “unity of the positions of the country-aggressor and authorities of Ukraine”.
Earlier it was reported that Russia is surprised with "unwillingness" of Kyiv to stop trade blockade with Donbas. Peskov critisized Kyiv for its "unwillingness to get rid of this blockade".
