Cease-fire in eastern Ukraine agreed in Minsk will soon be broken, and after that it certainly could follow all-out war, said Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico for local radio station RTV. Fico said that in Ukraine “Funny Games” are at play and it will soon offer for sale of weapons to the Ukrainian government. “Why did agreement to a cease-fire come into effect so late as it is Sunday morning? In order to ensure that both sides take their positions. It is not enough to avoid the war. The circumstances leading to an early cease-fire violations and the outbreak of the great War in Ukraine” Fico said. Fico also answered the question about the critical attitude of Slovakia to impose sanctions Russia. “Have these sanctions changed Russian stance? I think not. Slovakia is a small country; we can hardly be a part of this geopolitical challenge and conflicts. We do not have the tools, such as the United States, that any of our decisions could change behavior of anyone. Our only weapon is international law” said Slovak PM Fico.
Pro-Russian separatists “moral” can not stop the fighting in the east of Ukraine Debalceveu because it’s “inner territory” and must respond to fire Ukrainian troops, said on Tuesday Denis Pušilin, representative of the rebels. “We have no right (to break the fight in Debalceveu). It is also a moral issue, it is an internal Ukrainian territory,” said Pušilin to Reuters in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk.
“We have to return fire, work to destroy enemy positions … We are ready at any time to start removing heavy weapons. Both sides talk about heavy weapon withdrawal and peace but the conflicts is getting worse each hour.
