On April 19, Kiev putschists pledged no Easter weekend Eastern Ukraine attacks. They promised “suspension of the active phase of the anti-terrorism operation” to defuse crisis conditions.

A state security service (SBU) spokeswoman said suspension was “linked to the implementation of the Geneva agreement and the Easter holidays.”

Putschist Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia added:

“The anti-terrorist operation was put on hold for the Easter time, and we will be not using force against them at this moment.”

A day earlier, he said “more concrete actions” will follow next week if activists don’t stop resisting. He demands unconditional surrender.

Protesters remain firm. They want their fundamental rights respected. They want local autonomy. They want real democracy.

They reject Kiev putschists. They’re illegitimate. They demand they resign.

At the same time, earlier deployed neo-Nazi Right Sector thugs attacked Slavyansk activists.
