Kiev Claims of Taking Control Over Neutral Donbass Zone is Provocation - Moscow

Claims about Ukrainian army taking control over the neutral zone along the separation line in the Donbass sound like blatant provocation aimed at disrupting the peace process in conflict-hit eastern Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

"It is well known that the dangerous approach of the Ukrainian armed forces to the militia positions — and that is exactly what happens as a result of the seizure of the neutral zone by the Ukrainians — significantly increases the risk of direct military clashes… This looks like a blatant provocation aimed at disrupting the peace process," the ministry said in a commentary.

Meanwhile, the authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in Donbas later refuted Kiev’s claims about occupying the neutral zone, and called them "an attempt to provoke a conflict."
