As reported by Censor.NET citing ZN.UA, the diplomat called the trade blockade of the Donbas unacceptable.
"Blockade of the Donbas organized by members of the nationalist battalions is unacceptable. We urge the Ukrainian authorities to use all instruments to lift this trade embargo," Lavrov said after talks with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel in Moscow.
As reported, veterans blocked the Luhansk-Popasna haul, launching a trade blockade of the terrorist-held areas in the Donbas.
On Feb. 2, participants of the trade blockade barred another railroad track near Bakhmut.
On Feb. 16, the protesters started to shut down highways.
