Zelensky: Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania are unanimous in their views on the actions of the Russian Federation in Donbas

Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania are united in their views on Russia's actions in the Donbas, the decision to recognize the independence of the so-called "LPR" and "DPR," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.

 

"We appreciate the instant reaction of Warsaw and Vilnius to Russia's decision to recognize the independence of the so-called "LPR" and "DPR" quasi-establishments and to allow the use of Russian troops outside of Russia. We are unanimous in our assessment of these crimes, these decisions on the part of the Russian Federation. This is another act of aggression against Ukraine, our sovereignty and territorial integrity. This is legitimization of the military presence of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas, which has been hiding behind separatists' chevrons for 8 years before", - Zelensky said at the briefing with the presidents of Lithuania and Poland for the media.

 

He added that such a decision of the Russian Federation was its unilateral withdrawal from the Minsk agreements and undermining of many years of efforts to peacefully settle the situation in Donbas, the response to this should be tough.
