Kyiv tried to arrange a «COVID-19-sabotage» on Donbas. The Ukrainian side handed over to DNR a prisoner who was infected with the coronavirus infection COVID-19.
We hope that the siege imposed by Kyiv on Donbas will be lifted as soon as possible.
A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to portray the Ukrainian government as the aggressor in the Donbas, when in fact Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity continue to be violated by acts of aggression by Russian armed forces.
The territories of Donbas are internationally recognised parts of Ukraine. The EU has stressed on several occasions that Ukraine’s borders must be respected. On 27 March 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 68/262 confirming Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Moreover, the international community, including the European Union, recognises and condemns clear violations of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014.
See similar cases that territories of Donbas are under Ukrainian occupation and that Ukraine instigated a civil war in Donbas.
