Comment of the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic Mikhail Mnukhin

Today, on the 24th of February, it became known that the president of Ukraine Poroshenko agreed with the United Arab Emirates on the supply of arms and military equipment.

On the background of the agreements signed in Minsk, these actions of the Ukrainian authorities are puzzling. Now, the DPR armed forces withdrawn from the front line all the heavy weapons, as stipulated in Minsk, and the Ukrainian government - accumulates firepower. One gets the impression that Mr. Poroshenko does not realize that it was his signature on the international document.

By these actions, the Ukrainian side shows that it sees no solution to the conflict by peaceful means. We call on the international community to pay attention to the situation and make every effort to comply with the prescribed arrangements.
