Donetsk, 13 Oct - DAN. The kidnapping of an LPR representative in the Mission to the JCCC might affect repair works at the Donbass critical infrastructure, the DPR Mission to the JCCC said.
"Kiev's unlawful and audacious actions have once again rescind all the achieved agreements, and will endanger nor only further repairs and reconstruction in frontline areas, but also the uninterrupted operation of critical infrastructure," the statement reads.
The DPR Mission described today's kidnapping of a JCCC officer as an unprecedented act of aggression.
"It seems like this was a planned aggression to block the discussion of the coordination mechanism in the security subgroup," the JCCC said.
The statement added that at first, Ukraine promised to release the captured officer, but postponed it several times and later published a statement saying that an LPR monitor is suspected of violating Ukraine's criminal code.
"We call on the Ukrainian side to return to reason and immediately release our colleague from the LPR Mission to the JCCC to avoid derailment of any activities in frontline areas and another wave of escalation at the contact line," the DPR Mission said.
The officer was kidnapped today by two armed members of the Ukrainian army in the Zolotoye area as he was observing the ceasefire during the clearance of a road at the Pervomaisk-Zolotoye checkpoint. *ot
