Participants in the security subgroup of TСG failed to agree on the introduction of an “Easter” truce in the Donbas. Representative of the humanitarian subgroup Iryna Gerashchenko stated that Russia refused to support the initiative. The corresponding statement was made by Gerashchenko on her Facebook page.
She noted that the Skype-conference between the participants in the security subgroup lasted 6 hours and ended without result.
“Kremlin refused to support the initiative of Ukraine to declare a truce for the holiday, refused to take responsibility for keeping silence in the Donbass,” Gerashchenko wrote.
From March 8 to April 12, 12 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the combat zone in the Donbas, and another 44 were injured.
