As stated in Kiev, Russia's actions are allegedly aimed at destabilizing the situation "in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine."

“He assured that Ukraine does not want war and remains committed to the political and diplomatic settlement of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

According to French Ambassador to Ukraine Etienne de Ponsen, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is likely to visit Paris next week to meet with French leader Emmanuel Macron.

Earlier, the Kremlin announced the inadmissibility of repeating Srebrenica in the Donbass.

The Russian Foreign Ministry called on Ukraine and NATO countries to stop military preparations, escalate tensions in Donbass and refrain from destabilizing actions.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, in turn, noted that the Ukrainian side will open fire only in the event of a threat to its troops in Donbass or an attack on them.
