Lysenko (quoted by 112 Ukraine):
In order to divert attention from the tragic events in Syria, where civilians are dying, the Russian leadership is preparing an international provocation against Ukraine. Its goal is to discredit the leadership of our state, to obtain a pretext for filing a lawsuit against Ukraine to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, as well as to create the basis for the exit of the Russian Federation from the Minsk process.
According to Lysenko, Russia “will go to provocation in order to guarantee itself a way out of the Minsk process”.
In particular, Russia produces documentary materials about the alleged destruction by the Ukrainian military around 400 houses and 500 people, including women, children and the elderly of the village of Sokolniki, Slavyanoserbsky district, Luhansk region, which is located in a temporarily occupied territory near the demarcation line. Employees of the Federal Security Service, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation, the Investigative Committee of Russia and the “law enforcement officers of the LPR” are involved in this work.
In this case, there is only one question to Lysenko: “Mr. Lysenko, which means“about the alleged destruction"? Wasn’t the Ukrainian security forces, by order of the Ukrainian Supreme Commander, attacked the civilian objects of the DPR and the LPR? ..
Meanwhile, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Klimkin states that the Minsk process is in jeopardy. In an interview Ukraine Today Klimkin said that in the Donbass "peace will come only in the case of complete control over this territory from Kiev."
We talked about this in Berlin at the ministerial meeting of the "Norman Four". We made a number of comments, I gave a series of interviews, and also called almost all my colleagues yesterday and the day before yesterday. I will continue to do this - to inform them about the events taking place, but, especially before the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the EU countries, I, of course, will inform all my colleagues about what is happening, because now the whole Minsk process, especially the withdrawal of weapons, is in jeopardy. We need to talk openly about it.
So what's the problem? Disarm the radicals, remove the weapons from the line of contact, recognize the special status of Donbass, let the people in this region decide who they want to see at the head of the republics, exchange prisoners, and it’s not necessary to talk about the breakdown of the Minsk process.
