He stressed that the ceasefire violations have the variety.

The Ukrainian army has the right to answer during the shelling of their positions by Pro-Russian militants in Eastern Ukraine.

In an interview with German newspaper Bild said the Special representative of the US State Department on Ukraine Kurt Volker.

Answering the question of what attacks there are from Ukrainians, and from terrorists, Walker said: “of Course, the Ukrainians also shot, but you have to keep in mind that all this is happening in Ukraine. For the country it’s fine to have soldiers in their own country. It is not OK for one country to have its soldiers in another state. This is the situation in the East of Ukraine. There are some violations of the ceasefire by the Ukrainian side. But the vast majority and most serious injuries happen in the Russian-occupied side.”

Kurt Volker also noted that there are varieties of violations of the ceasefire. “If you protect the village in your country, and you find yourself under mortar fire, that’s one violation. If you then fire back in the direction from which attack was conducted, it is also a violation. It is the nature of the phrase “both sides”. It’s accurate enough, but it also misrepresents the nature of the problem,” he said.

Earlier, the special envoy of the state Department called the situation in the East of Ukraine “conflict between the state and the government“. “In the case of Ukraine, what we see is not an ethnic conflict, this is not a local conflict, this is not civil war, it is not a conflict between Russians and Ukrainians. It is a conflict between the state and the state,” said Walker.

Videocart Walker said that the self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR” have to disappear

At the discussion in the “Hudson Institute”, he noted that the so-called Republic was established by Russia to disguise their role in the conflict and strengthen opposition. They do not meet the Ukrainian Constitution and have no right to exist.
