"On January 14, a delegation of Czech lawmakers… from the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia, Zdenek Ondrace and Stanislav Mackovik will arrive in Donetsk People's Republic. The purpose of the visit is to examine the military operation consequences and humanitarian situation, to talk to civilians, who suffered from [armed hostilities]," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
According to the statement, the Czech lawmakers are expected to visit Donetsk airport, ruined by the shelling, and Oktyabrsky settlement, as well as to hold meetings with lawyers and DPR human rights representatives, who are expected to provide materials on war crimes of the Kiev-led forced in Donbass.
Kiev launched the military operation in Donbass in April 2014, after the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk rejected the new central government in Kiev, that came to power after what they considered to be a coup, and proclaimed independence.
In February, Kiev authorities and Donbass militias signed a deal on Ukrainian reconciliation in the Belarusian capital of Minsk.
Key points of the Minsk deal include a ceasefire, a weapons withdrawal from the line of contact in eastern Ukraine, constitutional reforms, including a decentralization of power in the country, and the granting of special status to the Donbass region.
