Russia blasts Ukrainian Donbas law as preparations for war

Ukrainian Donbas law
The Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday that it saw Ukraine's new law on the return of the insurgent Donbas region in eastern Ukraine as "preparations for a new war."

"There is no question of any 'reintegration'. On the contrary, everything done (by Kiev) will only split Ukraine even further and alienate citizens residing in Donbas," the ministry said in a statement.

Moscow accused Kiev of violating the Minsk deals on the Ukrainian conflict and undermining all existing mechanisms for finding mutually acceptable solutions.

Earlier in the day, the Ukrainian parliament passed a law on the return of the Donbas region, which the legislation defines as "temporarily occupied territories."

The law is designed to safeguard the rights of people living in Donbas, the Ukrainian parliament said in a statement.
