The EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Johannes Hahn has visited the line of demarcation in Shyrokyne. This was told to journalists by the first deputy speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Herashchenko, - the correspondent of OstroV reports.
"The EU Commissioner for Enlargement visits not only the Donbass and Mariupol, but Shyrokyne as well for the first time. He saw with his own eyes the consequences of those barbaric shelling of the once wonderful resort town which, according to the experts' estimates, cannot be restored today", - she said.
According to Iryna Herashchenko, Hahn was amazed by a small shell fragment from "Grad", a lot of which is lying around in Shyrokyne, most of all. "He held the fragment in his hands for so long, redefining that these pieces of iron are what kills and injures Ukrainians today", - the vice-speaker told.
She recalled that the Ukrainian party advocates the complete demilitarization of Shyrokyne both in Minsk and the "Normandy format", because "this is the Ukrainian territory and it is obvious that this is a huge danger zone which is located several kilometers from Mariupol – a city of many thousands, important in the context of infrastructure, economic and humanitarian".
