The letter says about the Kyiv regime, which is focused on resolving the conflict by force.

    The leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Denys Pushilin, and the leader of the Luhansk People’s Republic, Leonid Pasishk, have called on President Putin to help repulse the aggression of the Ukrainian armed forces to avoid civilian casualties and a humanitarian catastrophe in Donbass, Peskov said in a statement.


    In the letters to the President, they “stressed that due to the escalation of the situation and threats from Kyiv, the citizens of the Republics are forced to leave their homes. Their evacuation to Russia is undergoing. Under the conditions of ongoing military aggression by the Ukrainian army, social and industrial infrastructure, schools, hospitals, kindergartens are being destroyed and, worst of all, civilians die, including children. The behaviour of the Kyiv regime testifies to its dislike for ending the war in Donbas,” Peskov quoted the text of the letters.
