Alexander Kazakov, the Russian adviser to the leader of the "DPR" Alexander Zakharchenko, tries to soften the words of his boss that the militants are ready to occupy the uncontrolled Donbass via military means. This was said by the image adviser in the comment to the Russian radio Sputnik.
As previously reported, staying in Luhansk the leader of the "DPR" A.Zakharchenko once again declared his readiness to take military action on the free from militants territory of the Donbass with the purpose of its occupation on February 17. "We have always said that the liberation of the occupied territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts is our collective task. And we have always said that it is desirable to do via political means. If they do not understand, then I will remind them that we can do it via military means", - he said.
The statement of the leader of the "DPR" was criticized in the Kremlin on the same day. Thus, the Press Secretary for the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov has said that the words of the militant about the "military solution to the conflict" and the "liberation" of all the Donbass in arms contradicts the Minsk agreements. At the same time the representative of Moscow has written off this statement of Zakharchenko as emotional stress.
The adviser to the leader of the Donetsk terrorists tried to prove in his comment that Zakharchenko was misunderstood.
Ostensibly, these words about the "military means" were connected with the fact that "the heads of the republics begin a program of rendering of humanitarian assistance to the residents of the Donbass territories that are under the control of the law enforcement officers".
"Zakharchenko has said that if Kyiv opposes the program of assistance to compatriots or refuses to cooperate, within the Minsk process in particular, the militia of the Donbass will be ready to liberate its citizens via military means. This is a statement that the militia is ready for this", – Alexander Kazakov said.
At the same time the image adviser did not mention that the Minsk process does not provide the expansion of the territories controlled by terrorists, either political or military means.
