Blockade of the occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions does not fit the thesis of “Donbass – Ukraine”, said the people’s Deputy Konstantin mateychenko. About it it is told in the “Evening Prime” to “112 Ukraine”.

According to him, in case of violation of the legislation on the carriage of goods, appropriate actions should be taken by the public authorities.

“If we are talking about the blocking of large consignments, this, in principle, no. If there is, then it is contraband and illegal actions. From the public point of view it should be decided by state officials because it does not say on the site there are also companies registered in Ukraine, paying taxes to the Treasury of Ukraine. Donbass – this is our territory and that occupied part of Donbass”, – he said.

“If we said that we need to cut off and forget, then it (the blockade – ed) to this strategy fits. But if we say that this is our territory, here then does not fit the blockade,” – said Matacena.

The MP expressed his doubts about the appropriateness of the blockade. “I think all these attempts the best of intentions not to touch people, to whose power now the fate of our prisoners. So I doubt the correctness. To solve the issues of the release need those pathways that decide our intelligence agencies and officials”, – he explained.

Before the second commander of the battalion “Donbass” Anatoly Vinogrodsky noted that the veterans of the ATO announced the beginning of the economic blockade of the so-called “LNR/DNR”. According to him, this time the blockade will be more severe than years before.

Veterans of the ATO said that they will fight in the first place, smuggling of metal, wood, alcohol and cigarettes. According to them, they do not intend to infringe upon local people who are carrying food.

On the 16th of December, the soldiers of the volunteer battalions announced the militants in the Donbass ultimatum demanding the release of Ukrainian soldiers who are held in captivity. Fighters have to start the exchange of prisoners, or face economic blockade.
