The source of violence in the East of Ukraine – is a country-aggressor Russia and its puppets in the Donbas, the escalation in the last weeks before the New year is that the Kremlin withdrew the Russian officers from the Joint center for coordination and control of the ceasefire. About it at yesterday’s briefing said the press-attache of the U.S. Department of state Heather Nauert.

“Earlier, the centre had organized periods of cease-fire for the safety of civilians. However, the Russian authorities unilaterally decided to withdraw from this mechanism of reducing military tension,” she said.

According to Nauert, “Russia and its proxies in the Donbas are the source of violence in the East of Ukraine”, the Kremlin, leading the terrorists and supplying them with military means, “continues to heat up active armed conflict and humanitarian crisis” in the region.

Topic of the day: Why did the Kremlin withdrew its military from JCCC in the Donbass

18 December 2017, around 17.00 from Horlivka DNR terrorists have released the free territory of Donbass village of Novoluganskoe several dozen rockets from jet systems of volley fire Grad. Eight civilians were injured by shrapnel.

Previously, the negotiator from Ukraine in the Minsk process Yevhen Marchuk said that the withdrawal of the Russians from SCCC, making the goal to achieve agreement about the Christmas truce in the Donbass “almost unattainable”. In his opinion, such a step the Kremlin is pushing Kiev to direct talks with the militants, which is one of the goals of Russian propaganda, according to which in Eastern Ukraine is a “civil war” and is not a proxy aggression of the Russian Federation.

The DNI and LC – terrorist organizations seized with the support of the Russian part of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.
