Petro Poroshenko is ready to negotiate with the DNI and LC without additional conditions
In turn, Biden said that Washington fully supports the approach of the Ukrainian president.
"The United States supports the approach of the President of Ukraine to resolve the situation at this difficult time for Ukraine and are ready to make efforts to achieve peace in Ukraine," he said.
Poroshenko told the American Vice-President about the results of the Berlin meeting of the heads of foreign ministries of Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia, outlining his vision of future steps in line with the agreements reached.
According to the Ukrainian president, he is ready to renew the truce in the event of confirmation of its compliance in a bilateral format, as well as in establishing control over the border and the release of all hostages.
On July 3, the Deputy Minister of Defense of the DPR, Fyodor Berezin, declared that the authorities of the Donetsk People's Republic are ready for a bilateral cease-fire, but do not trust the peace initiatives of the Ukrainian president, reports RIA News".
“We do not object to a bilateral cease-fire. We ourselves have come up with such an initiative, ”he said.
In addition, today the First Deputy Prime Minister of the DPR, Andrei Purgin, noted that simultaneously with the cessation of hostilities, humanitarian corridors should be created.
“Without humanitarian corridors, a cease-fire is impossible,” he said.
In addition, Purgin said that the authorities of the DPR consider it impossible to transfer control over the border to Kiev authorities.
“This is our humanitarian corridor. A large amount of humanitarian aid accumulates on the Rostov side, and if Kiev overlaps “humanitarian aid,” this will be unacceptable for us, ”he said.
In turn, the press secretary of the LPR Vladimir Inogorodsky said that the authorities of the Luhansk People's Republic would cease fire only if the Ukrainian troops were withdrawn from their territory.
“The condition of a cease-fire for the LC remains the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from our territory,” said Inogorodsky, noting that dialogue with Kiev is possible only in this case.
