The lesson for Donbas is that when Russian troops leave, peace begins. And this can be seen in the example of Mariupol, Kurt Volker, the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine, wrote on his Twitter page.

“Five years ago this week, Ukrainian defenders liberated Mariupol which has been peaceful (except for when Russian forces shelled it killing dozens) ever since. The lesson for Donbas is that when Russian troops leave, the peace begins,” says Volker.

We recall, on June 13, 2014, after more than a month of armed confrontation with pro-Russian militants, Mariupol was liberated.

A special operation to liberate the city was carried out by units of Azov special purpose regiment, the police Dnipro-1 regiment, the National Guard of Ukraine and the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. To block the area of the operation, about 500 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and National Guard were involved.

According to the participants of those events, the active phase lasted for six hours and ended with the complete liberation of the city. About ten militants were liquidated, 20 were captured, several dozen managed to escape from the city. None of the civilians of Mariupol died.
