Donbas blockade aimed at pushing uncontrolled territories from Ukraine to Russia
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has said that the blockade of the uncontrolled territories of Donbas is aimed at pushing them away from Ukraine to the Russian Federation.
"The organizers of the blockade deceived the society, since it was not a blockade of the ORDO/ORLO. What a blockade can we talk about, when there is a hole in the border in hundreds of kilometers, including with the Russian Federation? In fact, it turned out to be a special operation aimed at pushing out the occupied areas from Ukrainian Donbas to the Russian Federation," he said during a speech at a meeting of the Regional Development Council in Kyiv on Monday.
Poroshenko noted that the organizers of the blockade should be ready to bear responsibility for their actions.
