"Peace" plan Poroshenko: artillery strike on the outskirts of Slavyansk
Despite the peace plan proposed by Petro Poroshenko, an artillery strike was again struck on the outskirts of Slavyansk. About this agency RIA News reported the representative of the city executive committee.
“Around midnight (1: 00 MSK), a blow was struck at the Artyom district - the area at the entrance to the city, the traditional place of clashes between security forces and militias,” the city executive committee reported.
Earlier, with reference to local residents and representatives of the militia, information appeared on the shelling of the village of Semyonovka, located in the suburb of Slavyansk, with incendiary bombs. However, the city executive committee cannot yet confirm or deny this information.
The proposed ceasefire plan proposed by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko began to operate on Friday evening, 20 June. It entered into force in 22: 00 local time (23: 00 Moscow time).
Recall, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko 19 June announced that he will publish his plan for the peaceful settlement of 20 June. On Friday evening, he made a statement that the Ukrainian army would cease hostilities for a week in southeastern Ukraine until 27 June.
At the same time, the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine states that, according to Poroshenko’s plan, the cease-fire is aimed at ensuring that the militia forces “could put weapon". "Those who do not, will be destroyed," - said in a statement. Poroshenko also said that during the truce, possible "fighting would only be in the nature of an answer."
In addition, the proposed Poroshenko plan provides for the free use of the Russian language in the south-eastern regions of the country, as well as early elections to local authorities.
However, the militia of Lugansk and Donetsk said that Poroshenko’s plan was incapable, and they were not going to lay down their arms. This was announced by the head of LC Valery Bolotov. He also added that in the Lugansk republic Poroshenko is not considered the president of Ukraine. The DNR also does not believe the promises of the security forces and are going to use the time given for a truce to regroup the forces.0
