EU expects Russia to distance from terrorists' statements on 'Malorossiya"

EU expects Russia to distance from terrorists' statements on 'Malorossiya"

The European Union expects Russia to distance itself unequivocally from "declarations" by the Donbas militants on the creation of “Malorossiya,” adding that this provocation violates the Minsk agreements.

This was stated in an EU spokesperson's message released Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"Recent "declarations" and provocative rhetoric from so-called leaders regarding certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine not currently under the control of the government run counter to the objectives of the Minsk agreements. The European Union expects Russia to distance itself unequivocally from such "declarations" or actions that violate the spirit of negotiations in which it is engaged, stepping up its efforts to bring this conflict to an end," the statement reads.

The EU emphasized that the "most recent deplorable development is part of a worrying trend that includes 'administrative measures' such as the expropriation of companies, the declaration of a 'state border' or adoption of currencies other than the Ukrainian hryvnia in Donetsk or Luhansk.

In parallel, the EU also continues to support an inclusive approach on Ukraine's part towards Ukrainian citizens living in areas not currently under the control of the government.

"The European Union supports fully the ongoing diplomatic efforts towards complete implementation of the Minsk agreements, as the basis for a sustainable political solution to the conflict in eastern Ukraine that respects Ukraine's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity," the statement reads.

Earlier, "Donetsk people's republic" terrorist leader Alexander Zakharchenko proposed to create a new state "Malorossiya" as legal successor of Ukraine for the transition period of three years. His planned state is to have a non-aligned status, aim at restoring connections with Russia and join the Union state of Russia and Belarus.

Germany and France have subsequently called on Russia to condemn the statements made by the so-called leaders of self-styled republic regarding "Malorossiya."
