Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin has stated that only the Russian military can stop the military confrontation in the Donbas. He told this during a press conference in occupied Donetsk.
"If the Russian military appeared on the line of contact, the war would end instantly, but how it will be perceived by the Western community, and how it will be presented to the media is a big question", - Pushilin noted.
The idea of the head of the occupation administration of CADO raises eyebrows, since the joint statement of 46 UN countries on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the adoption by the UN General Assembly of a resolution on the territorial integrity of Ukraine states that it is Russia that is a party to the conflict in the Donbas.
The Russian Federation supports occupation authorities of the Donbas with weapons, ammunition, military equipment and personnel on a permanent basis. Russia also categorically opposes monitoring of the section of the state border that is not controlled by Ukraine, through which columns of military equipment and armed Russian soldiers regularly enter the occupied Donbas. Russian officers under cover and under fictitious surnames are in fact in charge of all units of the so-called "People's Militias of the Republics". It was the invasion of the regular Russian Armed Forces that prevented the complete liquidation of the "DNR/LNR" armed gangs in 2014 and 2015. Many politicians in Russia do not hide this fact, calling the intervention against Ukraine the "north wind".
