People's Republic of Donetsk won't talk to Kiev junta

Representatives of the People's Republic of Donetsk stated that they could engage in a dialogue with Kiev only about the issues related to exchange of hostages and withdrawal of troops from the territory of the People's Republic of Donetsk.

The Chairman of the Supreme Council of the republic, Denis Pushilin, said that "at the moment, a dialogue with Kiev is impossible, there is no one to talk to. If we have something to discuss, the first question will be the question of exchange of hostages and withdrawal of occupation forces from our territory of the Donetsk republic." "We do not want bloodshed, and we make everything possible for this," he added.

However, according to him, the administration of the People's Republic of Donetsk does not exclude possible provocations and attacks against activists of the republic. "I do not exclude that there may be provocations against me," he said."If I'm killed, there will be someone else," he added.

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
