Russia's upper house of parliament called on lawmakers in Ukraine to put an end to Kiev forces’ “criminal acts”.

“Today I propose to express a consolidated position of the Council of the Federation and, taking into account the emergency circumstances, to appeal to the Verkhovna Rada to put an end to the Ukrainian military's criminal acts in the southeast of the country,” Committee for International Affairs chair Konstantin Kosachev said.

Apparently, Kiev is doing everything possible the intent of undermining the Minsk Agreements.

“The ongoing provocation looks very much like a well-directed show. Petro Poroshenko interrupted a foreign visit and has returned to Ukraine in a very demonstrative manner,” Konstantin Kosachev also added.
