The Ukrainian side has brought to the area ATO foreign delegation, headed by the former Secretary General of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The press center of the ATO in its release, described the politicians and journalists as “old and consistent friends of Ukraine”.
Foreigners showed destroyed homes of inhabitants of Donetsk region, which supposedly aiming to beat the “Russian occupation troops” were acquainted with the equipment of the Ukrainian army in the first and second lines.
“High foreign visitors”, among whom were former and current heads of European governments, the foreign Ministers of these States, members of parliaments, political advisers and consultants in one of the base camps met generals and officers of the ATO headquarters. The members of the delegation heard many examples of “violations by the Russian side to the Minsk agreements”.
In the final interview to Ukrainian and foreign journalists Anders Fogh Rasmussen said about the alleged “illegally staying on Ukrainian soil 40 thousand Russian soldiers and separatists”. Say, for this reason, Europe must continue to take a “firm and unequivocal position on support of Ukraine”. European politicians, according to Rasmussen, “today saw firsthand what needs to be quantitatively and qualitatively”.
