Zelensky outlines ways to achieve peace in Donbas

The president says the peace is key to Ukraine’s economic growth.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has outlined ways to achieve peace in Donbas, saying that the Armed Forces of Ukraine should be constantly and persistently strengthened while peace talks are held in the Normandy and Minsk formats.

“The president stressed that one of the ways to peace is the constant and persistent strengthening of our Armed Forces in parallel with talks in the Normandy and Minsk formats,” the press service of the President’s Office said, reporting on Zelensky’s working trip to the Joint Forces Operation zone.

The Ukrainian government will continue seeking the peace, the return of Ukrainian hostages and recovery of the occupied territories, because this is what the Ukrainian nation wants, he said.

According to him, achieving peace in Donbas is key to economic growth of the state and an improvement in the quality of life of every Ukrainian.

Andriy Ordynovych, a representative of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of issues related to the ceasefire regime and stabilization of the situation along the contact line in Donbas, confirmed that, despite random acts of provocation by Russia-controlled forces, the Ukrainian military’s morale is high. “They are ready to continue to carry out the tasks set by the country’s military and political leadership,” he said. “When communicating with them, I would say this: everyone is determined to protect the state and achieve peace as soon as possible.”

Zelensky also visited the front-line town of Maryinka in Donetsk region and talked with local residents. They said that in the absence of hostilities, the city is gradually reviving: people with children are returning home, many local residents are beginning to repair their homes. At the same time, people complained about the lack of natural gas and water supply.

Chairman of Donetsk Regional State Administration and head of the Regional Military-Civil Administration Pavlo Kyrylenko, in turn, promised that amid the ceasefire, it would be possible to safely begin repairing infrastructure to solve this problem. He said that under such conditions, natural gas and water would be available within six months.

In addition, the president asked the local authorities to start rebuilding Maryinka’s infrastructure, namely roads, as soon as possible.

  • I see no solutions for peace in this article. So I will add my own. Until Russia fuck off back to their shithole, no peace will happen in Ukraine, and that won’t happen unless devastating sanctions are placed on Russia. That won’t happen until the imbeciles in the West stop trying to split Russia and China, and concentrate on destroying the Russian economy.

    Allow my broken record to play again…
    This television clown is evidently even too stupid to be a president in a kindergarten play.
    You bet that I wish I had a dollar for every word spoken (CO2 exhausted) in every Minsk and Minsk II and Normandy Format. I’m not waiting for the next dead horse-riding event.
    One more time, Zelensky dork! Peace in Donbas = death of the pedophile dwarf.
