Occupation authorities of the "DNR" have announced that they would not allow Ukraine to carry out any repair work on the contact line. This was stated by Alexey Nikonorov, who calls himself "the DNR representative in the Contact Group".
According to him, the refusal to coordinate any actions on the demarcation line with Kyiv will remain in effect until Ukraine agrees to cooperate with the self-proclaimed "republics" of Donbas to develop some "viable mechanism for observing the ceasefire".
"We bindingly state that while the Ukrainian side continues this misguided practice and viable mechanism for observing the ceasefire is not developed, there can be no talk of any actions on the contact line", - Nikonorov stated, promoting the propaganda thesis that Ukraine violates the ceasefire.
At the same time, the occupiers cannot confirm their accusations with objective facts. The Ukrainian side has unequivocally stated at an extraordinary session of the security subgroup on January 25 that all the data provided by the CADLO representatives about the alleged shelling of the uncontrolled territory by the AFU were falsified.
As previously reported, on January 23, puppet authorities of the "DNR" revoked security guarantees for the repair of gas pipeline branch of the Marinka-Krasnohorivka gas distribution station, an agreement on which was reached at the security subgroup meeting on January 18.
