Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that Ukraine is not planning an attack on the DPR and LPR – RBC

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) adhere to the Minsk agreements and do not plan any offensive operations or shelling of the territories of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. This was stated by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on Facebook.

“Our actions are purely defensive in nature,” Zaluzhny explained, “Any harm that can be done to people or infrastructure in the temporarily occupied territories is a provocation.”

In his opinion, the responsibility for what is happening in the republics of Donbass lies with Russia, which “grossly violates” the Minsk agreements. In total, by 19:00 on February 17, the military of the DPR and LPR violated the ceasefire at least 47 times, Zaluzny continued.
