Kyiv: The US Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine Christine Quinn called on Russia fully withdrawing from Donbass and Crimea, also releasing all illegally arrested Ukrainians.
Quinn announced that via video message on the occasion of the Day of World Piece published on Twitter on Monday, September 21.
,,On World Peace day we call on Russia to choose peace. Ukrainians like all people want to live their lives in peace and full recognition of their human rights. Until Russia ends the conflict that manufactured and sustained in Donbass, and fully withdraws from Donbass and Crimea, Ukrainians can’t enjoy the peace they deserve’’, she said.
Besides that, Quinn mentioned that U.S. is remaining fully committed to diplomatic efforts to end Russia’s conflict in the eastern Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea.
