Original Message "US State Department spokesperson Marie Harf refused to directly acknowledge Kiev’s role in violating the Minsk peace agreements in eastern Ukraine, turning a blind eye on daily OSCE reports that equally implicate the government and the rebel forces.

The video below shows RT’s Gayane Chichakyan grilling Harf – and failing to get a straight answer on the issue despite multiple attempts."

"Chichakyan reminds Harf about the daily reports compiled by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) listing violations, noting that the breaches are more or less equally split between both sides of the conflict.

Harf continues to insist that the “majority of violations” to the Minsk agreements have been committed by rebel forces and not Ukrainian troops.

Over the past two months, the OSCE has blamed the Donetsk and Lugansk forces for nine violations of the ceasefire, while accusing the Ukrainian government of another eight. Chichakyan added that there were only 33 reports regarding rebel violations of the requirement for heavy weapons withdrawal under the Minsk agreements, compared to 35 reported violations by Ukrainian troops.

The latest incident was a shelling in Donetsk overnight on Wednesday. Nineteen people, both civilians and militiamen, were killed and over a hundred injured in the bombardment, according to local officials.

Another six civilians had been killed earlier in the day in the city’s south-west districts, while another 90 were injured.

Last week, three civilians, including a child, were reportedly killed in the town of Gorlovka after a shell fired by the Ukrainian military hit a residential area."
