DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko said that a hope for a peaceful settlement isn’t dead yet, but the DNR reserves the right to respond to events with discretion because of egregious actions on the part of the junta. When reporters asked him about the future of the Minsk Agreement, he said, “You know, hope dies last. As regards the shelling of Gorlovka, once again, the Ukrainian side showed that it wouldn’t carry out the peace agreement. They prefer to violate it blatantly. Thus, Poroshenko’s signature on the Minsk-2 agreement was nothing but a deliberate deception, not only against us, but also against his country and the rest of the world. Until now, the DNR has plainly fulfilled all its obligations. However, we reserve the right to act at our own discretion”.
