 "We are talking of peace, but there is no peace. Political solution of the conflict would mean defeat to Putin," - Butusov

Russian terrorist troops are withdrawing weapons from the demarcation line under political pressure, but combat activities continue in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) area.

This was announced by Censor.NET's Chief Editor Yurii Butusov on air of 5 TV channel.

"We are talking of peace, but there is no peace. The enemy, we should give credit for it, still is forced to decrease the volume of combat activities under political pressure, and to withdraw heavy weapons. To a large extent, these weapons have been withdrawn, but combat activities continue," Butusov noted.

"At the moment, the enemy simply uses small arms and mortars. And saboteur groups are also trying to operate in our near rear," he stressed.

Butusov says that Putin's strategy is to preserve the armed conflict, for political solution would mean defeat for the Russian president.
