Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland Witold Waszczykowski said that there is no such thing as a «crisis in Ukraine», because in fact the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, provoked and supported by Russia, continues in Ukraine.
At the same time, Russia continues to support militants in the Donbass, IA «Vchasno» reports.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland said this in an interview with the RIA.
According to Waszczykowski, such actions of the Russian Federation are a problem for the entire international community.
«There is no such thing as a crisis in Ukraine», he said. — There is a Russian-Ukrainian conflict caused by Russia. Russia sent its troops to capture the Crimea, Russia initiated the rebellion in the Donbass. This is not a problem for Poland, it is a problem for the international community that the Russian Federation has violated international law and bilateral legislative acts between the Russian Federation and Ukraine».
Waszczykowski also noted that Russia continues to support militants in the certain districts of Donetsk region, and therefore military traffic, including weapons, ammunition, and personnel, can freely flow through the border.
According to the minister, the military conflict in Ukraine can not be considered frozen, because there shelling are continued and civilians are dying. At the same time, Waszczykowski stressed that the pro-Russian militants are guilty of shelling.
«According to our information, the main shelling is being carried out by separatists supported by Russia», Waszczykowski said.
In addition, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland said that Donbass militants can not be called militiamen since they oppose the legitimate authorities.
«I have yet to touch upon the term «militiamen» that you use — once again I want to emphasize that these are separatists, because how else do you call people who oppose legitimate authorities?», Waszczykowski noted.
