As stated by US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch in Ukraine one of the conditions of the local elections in some regions of Donbas is the assignment of military of the conflict.
“It is necessary to build confidence. In this context it is worth recalling the agreement of assignment of forces and resources in three areas along the contact line. I know that this is a very contentious issue in Ukraine, but if you have the opportunity to take strength from each other, the less likely that they will face in combat. This is one of the first steps in my view, both for the population and for the whole of the political process – to approve the security “, – Jovanovic said.
The US ambassador said that mode of silence in Donbas is not observed. She also said that the US position remains as following the elections in the region are possible after full provision for security guarantees.
The withdrawal of troops reportedly at Stanitsa Luhanska was broken.
