Ukraine: DPR's Zakharchenko announces September 15 ceasefire

Ukraine, Donetsk
September 13, 2016 at 14:43 GMT +00:00 · Published

Head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), Alexander Zakharchenko, announced a ceasefire starting at midnight on September 15 and called on Ukrainian authorities to "take it seriously," in Donetsk, Tuesday

"We cease firing alongside any military operations and we urge the Ukrainian side to take it seriously and show that they are ready for actions rather than declarative statements," he said, before adding that “military units of Donetsk People's Republic do not consider it as a weakness rather than a demonstration of a good will. In case of any violation of the ceasefire by the Ukrainian side, our units will respond in kind."

Zakharchenko continued by stressing the adherence of the DPR to the Minsk agreements: "We believe that there is only one solution – a peaceful settlement. And the only ground for such a settlement is Minsk agreements."
