Poroshenko: Situation in Donbas cannot be solved by military methods alone

 Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has met
with UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman, the
presidential press service has reported.

The
president thanked the UN secretary general for supporting peace and
de-escalation of the situation in the Donbas. He said that there was no
internal conflict in Ukraine, reports GHN based on Ukrinform.

“People
in Donetsk and Luhansk want peace. The implementation of the peace plan
proposed by us determines our further actions. We realize that this situation
cannot be settled by military methods alone,” Poroshenko said.

He
informed Feltman about the shelling by militants of a column of civilians who
tried to leave Luhansk.

The
president also spoke about the initiative of the Ukrainian side to send
international humanitarian assistance to Luhansk, which, under the control of
terrorists, is now on the verge of a humanitarian disaster.

Poroshenko
said that Russian servicemen were fighting in the Donbas and Russia continues
to send the newest weapons to them, including tanks, artillery, and rocket
launchers.

He also
urged the international community to help release hostages who are illegally detained
in Russia.

Speaking
on behalf of the UN secretary general, Feltman, in turn, thanked Poroshenko for
his peace initiatives and invited him to attend the next session of the UN
General Assembly in New York in September.
