Donetsk separatists decline ceasefire

The terrorists in the Donetsk oblast refused to accept the ceasefire declared by government forces at 22.00 Friday.

Writing on Facebook, the leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, ex-GRU officer Igor Strelkov, said DPR would not accept the ceasefire because Poroshenko did not invite the separatists to join the peace talks. 

Pres Poroshenko said the talks must be held among the Kyiv government and Donbas politicians, businessmen and public persons, waving off the terrorists.

“We will fight Ukrainian invaders until their complete defeat and expulsion from Novorossiya [Putin’s propaganda term for Ukraine’s eastern and southern oblasts – Ed.], Strelkov wrote.
