Participants of the demonstration, among them women and children, were delivered by five buses from Donetsk, Joinfo.ua reports.
After the demonstration in Olenivka, the participants went on foot to the contact line with posters, which said: “Ukraine is violating the Minsk Agreements.”
The ATO staff promptly informed the representatives of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission, the National Police and the State Border Service of Ukraine about taking all necessary measures to counter this pre-planned provocation.
“We appeal to the initiators of the illegal action: if any civilians, whom they made by force or deception to participate in the staged action, will be injured, the responsibility will fall on the shoulders of the organizers and the so-called “government of DPR,” – stated the ATO staff.
