Hugues Mingarelli told Glavkom his reasoning why part of the Donbas remains occupied, Censor.NET reports.
The EU Ambassador said it was obvious for him that without some efforts by Russia, the so-called separatists would have had difficulties with seizing the territories they currently control. So the solution to the conflict, which should be a political one, must be supported by Russia, Mingarelli said.
The Ambassador added that the EU sees no other alternatives for solving the Donbas conflict.
