Today, on the 21th of February in Berlin, Ambassador of Ukraine commented in extremely negative way the trip of the German Left Party deputies Wolfgang Gerke and Andrew Hunko, who have come with humanitarian mission to the territory of the DPR earlier.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic expresses its extreme concern with public criticism, which was targeted at the Bundestag MPs, who had visited the ATO area with the vital medicines.

We remind the Ambassador that the Donbass civilians are in a very difficult situation due to the economic and transport blockade. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic condemns such statements, made by Mr. Melnik. We emphasize that the trip of Wolfgang Gerke and Andrew Hunko was totally humanitarian.
