“There can be no question”: Pushilin reacted to the truce announced by Putin


The head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, commented on the Christmas truce announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin. This decision concerns a ceasefire or offensive actions only on the Russian side, the politician clarified in his Telegram channel.


There can be no talk of any truce!

- Pushilin wrote, noting that the decision of the head of state concerns Orthodox people, for whom it is important to go to church, to defend the Christmas service.

As for the leadership of the rest of Ukraine, the head of the DPR added that “for obvious reasons” they are not considered Orthodox.

This does not mean that we will not respond to the provocations of the enemy! Or we will give at least some chance to the enemy during these festive hours to improve their positions on the line of contact
 
the politician concluded.

On the eve of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Rus', Kirill proposed to introduce a Christmas truce from 12:00 on January 6 to 24:00 on January 7. Russian President Vladimir Putin supported this initiative and instructed Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to introduce a ceasefire on the line of contact in Ukraine at the specified time, after which the decree was issued to the troops.

In Ukraine, the Christmas truce announced by the Russian side was called “hypocrisy”, Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba advised “not to take seriously” the decision of the Russian leader, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia wants to “use Christmas as a cover”.

Now Russia wants to use Christmas as a cover in order to stop the offensive of our guys in the Donbass at least for a while and bring them closer machinery, ammunition and mobilized. Everyone in the world knows how the Kremlin is using the breather to continue offensive operations with renewed vigor.

 - said the Ukrainian leader in his evening address.

Ранее сообщалосьthat many Russian military correspondents, journalists, bloggers and near-military publics reacted with disapproval to the decision taken by the head of state. In their opinion, this is a senseless and hopeless undertaking. Thus, journalist Aleksey Sukonkin believes that there was no need to declare a truce, since Kyiv will not appreciate this anyway and will continue hostilities.

    I heard Zelensky speak (in Russian!) about stopping the shooting at Christmas. The reporter does not write, and he said that he offered us a truce for Christmas in the "European" style, but the Russians did not agree! In my opinion, the last (and the first too) time he offered a truce during the assault on Azovstal! I wanted to save my Azov people!

    Catholics rule there and they have a truce like a bone in their throat! With these... we are not related. These creatures are newcomers and not believers. It's just a caudle of american goats

      Non-Orthodox non-Catholics rule there, you can’t figure it out without vodka. And renegades from Tomos.

    I think that the Kremlin did not hope either. But now Putin can poke everyone in the nose - you did not agree to a truce. Because they were very loudly against it, and everyone heard it. So we fight.
