Jean-Luc SchaffhauserL'eurodiputat francès no adherit Jean-Luc Schaffhauser encapçala una nova oferta per trobar una resolució pacífica a la crisi actual a Ucraïna.

Under the cross-party initiative, an international Forum for “peace and unity” will be set up comprising parliamentarians and representatives from civil society.

Jean-Luc Schaffhauser, one of the MEPs behind the move, has written to the heads of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics to inform them of the idea of setting up a forum and also to “discuss future development of both regions” after the Minsk 2 accord agreed on 12 February.

Under the working title, ‘Donbass: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’, es preveu que la primera reunió del Fòrum tingui lloc a Donetsk 11 i 12 maig.

L'esdeveniment de dos dies comptarà amb la presència de diputats europeus i representants dels governs de les repúbliques de Donetsk i Lugansk.

The Forum calls for an “autonomy statute” respecting the “specific political, economic, social and cultural” areas of eastern Ukraine.

També dóna suport a iniciatives humanitàries per a la reconstrucció de les zones destruïdes pels combats.

Un altre objectiu és que els termes de l’alto el foc acceptat a Minsk queden plenament implementats.

Speaking at a news conference in Parliament on 11 March to launch the Forum, Schaffhauser said, “We want to leave behind all the ideology and bring together those who support the Minsk Agreement.”

Schaffhauser said that while Ukrainian sovereignty should be respected this should be on condition that the autonomy of the local authorities in the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine “is also recognized.”

The deputy added, “The overall aim of what we are doing is to promote peace and unity in Ukraine and oppose the division of Europe.”

Addressing the packed briefing, Schaffhauser said he hoped the conference in May will allow him and others to get a “hands -on” account of the current situation in the trouble-torn region.

Schaffhauser, who has previously visited the region, said, “We want to bear witness to what is happening there and to see if the provisions of the Minsk Agreement are actually being implemented. In other words, we want to see the peace process on the ground.”

“NATO currently seems to want to cut Europe in two and Ukraine appears to be an instrument in it achieving this. Surely, what we should be striving for though is a unified, peaceful Europe. That is why this initiative seeks to bring together politicians of all colours and nationalities who, like me, share an objective view of Ukraine.”

Speaking at the same briefing, Alessandro Musolino, an Italian political scientist, said, “I do not wish to get into an argument about the rights and wrongs of what is happening in Ukraine but, rather than creating war-like situations with its neighbours, Europe should concentrate on addressing its other battles elsewhere.

“It is in the interests of no one, including Russia, for Ukraine to be divided but at the same time consideration should be given to granting more autonomy in eastern Ukraine.”

Another speaker, German-based publisher and journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter, recalled the “terrible” suffering and destruction to civilian buildings he witnessed during a visit to the Donbass region in November.

He said, “I saw schools that had been bombarded and civilian buildings destroyed. We should recall that all this is happening right at the heart of Europe and not at its gates. It is for this reason that I fully support this very laudable new initiative.”

His comments are echoed by Alain Fragny, of Urgence Enfants D’Ukraine, a French public organisation which has provided humanitarian aid to civilians in eastern Ukraine.

Fragny said efforts, such as the new Forum, to find a lasting peaceful solution were “all the more vital” given the current humanitarian situation in Donbass which he described as “shocking”.

Sota el cessament del foc aconseguit al febrer, les dues parts havien de retirar les armes pesades a principis de març.

Les dues parts implicades en el conflicte hauran de crear una zona de memòria intermèdia entre elles d’una manera mínima 50km per a l’artilleria del calibre 100mm o més, 70km per a sistemes de coets múltiples i 140km per als míssils i coets més pesants.

L'alto el foc sembla estar consolidant tot i els continus enfrontaments. Els costats oposats s'han acusat mútuament de trencar la treva o utilitzar-lo com una coberta per reagrupar-se.

Es creu que, com a mínim, la gent de 6,000 va morir i més d’un milió han fugit de les seves llars des que va esclatar el conflicte el mes d’abril passat a les regions orientals de Donetsk i Luhansk.

Des de 15 febrer, quan va començar oficialment l’alto el foc, els militars ucraïnesos de 64 han estat assassinats, ha afegit. En total, el líder ucraïnès va dir que els soldats ucraïnesos de 1,549 han estat assassinats des que va començar la rebel·lió.
