Taking into account the all-recent actions of the Ukrainian authorities and the general military and political situation in the region, an emergency in the territory of Donbass completely fits into the "logic" of official Kiev. Such a state provides a hard limit and control of the movements of all citizens residing in the specified territory.

There is another attempt to isolate the civilians of our towns and villages, which exacerbates the already dire humanitarian situation by itself. After all, many citizens left the family and relatives on the other side of the front.

Apparently, the idea of access regime, introduced earlier, seemed to be too unproductive for Kiev. Perhaps such decisions are dictated by the general hysteria that increasingly affects the Ukrainian politicians during the offensive of the DPR’s and LPR’s armies.

Once again, we would like to remind Kiev that any such restrictions are a direct violation of the fundamental human rights and freedoms. We reserve the right to demand compensation from the Government of Ukraine for all these actions caused the damage and bring the perpetrators to justice at the international level.
