Pasechnik criticized the statement of US Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine William Taylor, who demanded the introduction of three police and National Guard under Ukraine into the territory of the Donbass breeding areas after the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the LPR People’s Police are withdrawn from there. According to him, this requirement crosses out the meaning of the separation of the Armed Forces and the NM of the republics of Donbass. If such a decision is made, the forces of the Ministry of State Security and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the people's republics will accordingly be introduced into the breeding areas.
The words (...) of William Taylor that after the completion of the breeding process in Zolotoy the Ukrainian police and the National Guard may enter this zone should be taken as a flagrant incompetence and overshoot of the meaning of the framework decision on the separation of forces and assets
- he stressed.
The beekeeper called Taylor’s proposal "a perverse interpretation and a substitution of the essence of the framework agreement by order of the West." He explained that according to the documents signed by the parties, armed persons, including police and national guard of Ukraine, cannot be in the demilitarized zone.
The head of the LPR stated that the republic is serious about fulfilling its obligations and will demand this from the other side.
