The official representative of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Romain Nadal, made a statement to the Ukrainian authorities to lift the transport blockade from Donbas. According to him, the blockade of transport routes in the east of Ukraine causes concern in Paris and does not contribute to the process of peaceful settlement in accordance with the Minsk agreements. In this regard, France calls on Kiev urgently to stop blocking the movement of goods.
– France is extremely concerned about the decision of the Ukrainian government, adopted on March 15, about the introduction of a temporary blockade on the movement of goods towards the east of the country. We call on the Ukrainian authorities to lift the blockade from the railway tracks near the line of contact, – he said.
He also said that Paris is concerned about the recent decision of the Russian authorities to recognize passports “de facto by the authorities of the east of Ukraine” and the decision of the self-proclaimed “republics” to introduce external management in Ukrainian enterprises located in their territories.
