Yuriy Lutsenko, the head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc party, spoke in the Parliament with a proposal to completely block the occupied part of the Donetsk region, Joinfo.ua reports.
"The President of Ukraine believes that the cancer is to be blockaded. The practice of the head of the Luhansk military and civil administration, Mr. Moskal, who banned any movement of vehicles from the occupied territory, is recognized as correct. It should be extended to the territory of the Donetsk region too," said Lutsenko, speaking from the rostrum of the Parliament.
According to Lutsenko, it is needed to strengthen the line of demarcation and to establish economic blockade of the occupied districts of the Donetsk region. "The logic is simple: either the Russian Federation withdraws terrorist groups and allows Ukraine to establish control over the state border, or we temporarily hold the blockade on the inside line of collision," Lutsenko explained.
He also believes it is necessary to make an area of priority economic development in the liberated territories, as well as in the Kharkiv and Odessa regions. "The middle class has to leave the occupied territories, to receive loans for the creation of jobs in Ukraine," said Lutsenko.
