    The authorities of Ukraine are seeking the peaceful resolution to the conflict in Donbas, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Belarus, Mykhailo Yezhel, said on Friday.

    MINSK, October 10 (RIA Novosti) -The authorities of Ukraine are seeking the peaceful resolution to the conflict in Donbas, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Belarus, Mykhailo Yezhel, said on Friday.

    "Ukraine is seeking the peaceful resolution to the conflict in Donbas and we make every effort to fulfill the peaceful agreements," Yezhel said at the CIS summit in Minsk.

    The Ukrainian ambassador to Belarus reminded that the Ukrainian parliament, Verkhovna Rada, adopted the bills granting amnesty to the conflict's participants and special status to the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Luhansk.

    Kiev began its military operation against independence supporters in the southeastern regions of the country in mid-April. According to UN estimates, the conflict has claimed more than 3,600 lives.

    On September 5, at the meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, representatives from Kiev and the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk agreed on a ceasefire that came into force on the same day.
