Goncharenko did not write in his Telegram that Russia "from year to year exacerbates aggression against Ukraine".
"First, Putin occupied the Crimea, then started a war in the Donbass. And now he continues to exert pressure: his apostates - the so-called L/DPR - are independent. By yesterday's confession, Putin, in fact, himself terminated diplomatic relations with us", the deputy said.
Earlier today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky threatened Russia with a severance of diplomatic relations. At the same time, Zelensky said that the country does not believe in the likelihood of war, as well as a full-scale military escalation. But the Ukrainian leader allowed consideration of the "request of the leaders of the militants" for the withdrawal of troops from the controlled territories.
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the recognition of the Donbass republics on February 21 in the evening during a televised address to citizens. He signed a cooperation agreement between the parties.
Tonight it became known about the arrival of the Russian military in the DPR and LPR. The head of the State Duma Committee on the CIS, Leonid Kalashnikov, claims that the signed agreements do not mention borders. He noted that Russia does not have the right to clarify foreign borders - such issues are assigned to the DPR and LPR.
