December 14 – President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stresses the need to free the hostages, who are held hostage by the militants as well as in Russia. “I demand clear, well-organized cooperation between Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) and the Foreign Ministry in order to bring our people home.

December 14 – Self-proclaimed “Luhansk People’s Republic ” declared its readiness to continue fighting if the Ukrainian soldiers do not leave the territory of “the republic.”

This information was provided in an anouncement by LPR. It emphasizes that as long as there are Ukrainian soldiers on the territory of LPR, there can be no talk of a full-fledged peace. “This is a temporary peace and one cannot relax in it,” noted “head” of LPR Ihor Plotnytskyj. According to him, Ukrainian forces are continuing to increase their numbers in the frontal area. According to Plotnytskyj, there are many less LPR soldiers than the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We remind all, that earlier on Sunday they announced that the fighters violated the silent regime in Donbas 14 times.

December 14 – MFA of Ukraine turned to the country members of UN with a statement, in which they appealed to accept further consolidated steps to halt Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. This statement of MFA is related to the 40th anniversary of the resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations “Definition of Aggression ” (3314 (XXIX). “The actions of the Russian Federation regarding Ukraine as one of the founding countries of UN, especially the occupation and anexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (Ukraine), as well as the on-going direct and indirect army intervention in Eastern Ukraine, fall under the category of aggression according to points a), b), c), d), e), and g) on page 3 appended to the resolution of the General Assembly UN 3314 (XXIX) ” – specified in the text of the statement. According to the MFA, the carrying out by Russia of an act of aggression against a sovereign country, disregarding its permanent mebership in the Council of Safety UN, is a crime against international peace and carries with it an international responsibility.

P.S.: Please spread this appeal as much as possible.
