UNITED NATIONS, August 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The escalation of the situation in the southeast of Ukraine has become a direct consequence of Kiev’s criminal policies, which is waging a war against its own people, Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said at the UN SC meeting on Thursday.
“With support from and under the influence of a number of well-known states the Kiev authorities have torpedoed all political agreements on settling the crisis in Ukraine,” including the Geneva statement of April 17 and the Berlin declaration of July 2,” Churkin said.
The Russian envoy remarked that President Pyotr Poroshenko’s peace plan for settling the conflict in Ukraine “was a step towards further escalation, because it pegged armistice to the capitulation of militias.”
Churkin recalled that just yesterday, when he was commenting on the results of the meeting in Minsk, Poroshenko said that Kiev’s main goal was peace. In the meantime, “the Ukrainian forces in defiance of all norms of international humanitarian law and just moral principles are indiscriminately attacking cities, residential areas and infrastructures.
