Ukrainian radicals declare Donbass trade blockade's 2nd stage

The organizers of the trade blockade of Donbass pass to its second stage, stated the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Semyon Semyonchenko.

"Now we are moving on to the second stage," the deputy said on air of the Ukrainian ZIK TV channel.

Semenchenko stressed that if the state preserved the idle position towards enhancing its defense capacity, they would "act as representatives of civil society." According to him, for this purpose, training camps have been deployed along the border with the Russian Federation.

Earlier, the organizers of the Donbass blockade claimed their intention to cut off coal supplies from Russia to Ukraine.
