Ukraine doesn't care about Minsk, it needs war - Alexander Zakharchenko
According to the Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Kiev needs a war, not the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
Today, on June 8, the DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko answered the journalists' questions during his working visit to the Donbass Greenhouses state enterprise in Zugres.
First of all, media representatives were concerned about the situation of the nine-year-old boy Vladislav Zaichenko from the Petrovsky district of Donetsk, who had been injured in the AFU shelling on June 5 and was in critical condition at the moment.
"Under my control and that of the city administration head, the head of the Petrovsky district is engaged in providing any necessary assistance to this boy. We will do whatever is needed," said Alexander Zakharchenko, commenting on the situation of the wounded child.
The Head of the Republic also spoke about the issue of material support of large families of the DPR enterprises’ employees under state receivership.
"The programme for providing material assistance to large families is ongoing. Already next week, 40 large families of the enterprises’ employees are to receive material aid in the amount of 10,000 rubbles, and those of the Yenakiyevo Steel Plant and Gorlovka Stirol will receive food sets," said Alexander Zakharchenko.
The DPR Head commented on a possible aggravation on the contact line due to the tense situation that had developed over the past two days in the neighbouring Lugansk People's Republic, where the AFU made several attempts to attack and break through the defense line of the LPR People’s Militia in the vicinity of Zhelobok locality.
"Aggravation was never over in our Republic’s contact line sector. Yesterday and the day before the situation deteriorated dramatically in the LPR, but we face such battles every day. The enemy has intensified shelling, because Kiev needs war, and thus they are struggling to unleash it, they do not care about Minsk," said the DPR Head, responding to journalists' questions about possible deterioration of the military situation in the Republic.
