Political dialogue absence at Minsk talks causes escalation on Donbass contact line

Political dialogue absence at negotiations in Minsk has caused escalation of the situation on the contact line in Donbass, DPR Representative Office Head to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) Ruslan Yakubov states. 

Earlier, DPR Operational Command and Republican Representative Office to the JCCC stated shelling on the part of the Ukrainian military with the use of artillery of a large caliber and MRLS. 

“The absence of a political dialogue at Minsk talks has caused regular escalation of the situation on the contact line. When politicians become silent, cannons start “speaking”. However, the situation can be stabilized only through political means,” said Yakubov.
