The "DNR/LNR" occupies have stated that their self-proclaimed representative offices in the JCCC were legalized in Minsk. This is said in a statement of calling himself the head of the "DNR" representative office in the JCCC.
The statement expresses readiness "to participate in the coordination mechanism for responding to violations of the ceasefire regime".
Representatives of the occupation forces remind that "one of the additional measures agreed by the Contact Group in Minsk, designed to qualitatively improve the effectiveness of the ceasefire, is the creation and use of a coordination mechanism to respond to the ceasefire violations".
It is noted that according to the agreements, this mechanism should be carried out with the assistance of the JCCC in its current structure, that is, with the interaction of representatives of the Ukrainian side, the "DNR" and the "LNR".
As previously reported, the terrorist "DNR/LNR" announced the creation of "missions" under the jurisdiction of the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination on ceasefire after the departure of Russian officers and expressed a desire to cooperate with the OSCE mission. Officially, there are no representative offices of the terrorist "republics" in the Joint Center. The JCCC consisted of 128 officers of the AFU and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation before the demarche of the Russian Federation. They worked in 16 control groups – 8 each in the territory controlled by Ukraine and in the zone of occupation.
