Statements by militants about the creation of a new state in the East of Ukraine is violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity. This was stated by the representative of the foreign Ministry of Turkey Huseyn Muftuoglu, according to the Agency “Anadolu”.
“Turkey perceives the statements of the separatists on the establishment of a new state in the East of Ukraine, in violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Such statements and actions clearly complicate the path to peace”, – said Muftuoglu.

He added that Ankara supports all the peace efforts in this matter, particularly the steps taken in the framework of the Minsk process.
Muftuoglu also noted the importance of steps on all sides for a peaceful resolution of the situation.
Recall that on 18 July the leader of the so-called “DNR” Alexander Zakharchenko announced the creation of a new project under the name “little Russia”.
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, in reply, said that the leader of the so-called “DNR” Alexander Zakharchenko is not a political figure and only relays the Kremlin statement.
