Oleksandr Zakharchenko, the leader of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) terrorist organization, said that any solution to the conflict in Donbas, except the Minsk agreements, would lead to destruction and economic collapse.
Such statement Zakharchenko made in his special address, which was posted by one of the organization's publication.
At this, the DPR leader once again accused Kyiv of its failure to comply with the Minsk cease-fire agreements.
There is no reasonable alternative but a political solution of the conflict in the framework of Minsk talks, according to Zakharchenko. All other options will inevitably lead to senseless deaths, destruction and economic collapse, he said.
"Nowadays, the most reasonable thing is to find a will – a human and political will — and continue to force Ukraine to fully abide by all the provisions of the Minsk accords," Zakharchenko said.
Yesterday, Russian media reported the so-called "coup d'etat" in the Donetsk People's Republic in which the DPR parliament sent its speaker Andrei Purgin to resignation. His duties will be performed by deputy speaker Denis Pushilin.
