Topic of the day: Why did the Kremlin withdrew its military from JCCC in the Donbass
18 December 2017, Russia has stated that it withdraws its military from JCCC in the Donbass. The occupant country has also accused Ukraine of “creating serious difficulties in the work of the centre”. The next day the Ukrainian and Russian JCCC officers left the temporarily occupied areas of Donbass.
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.
