He urged the Kremlin 'to cease its brutal aggression in Donbas, to refuse from arms deliveries to the occupied territories and stop the obstruction of Minsk Agreements'.

'Moscow has to refuse from conduction of fake 'local elections' on the occupied Donbas in November; it’s illegal, it’s another example of Russia’s subversive activity,' the statement says.
