MOSCOW, April 26 – RIA Novosti. Vladimir Putin at a meeting with UN Secretary General António Guterres compared the actions of Kyiv with the militants of the Islamic State*.
“We hear from the Ukrainian authorities that there are civilians there. But then the servicemen of the Ukrainian army are obliged to release them. Or they then act like terrorists in many countries of the world, like ISIS * in Syria, hiding behind the civilian population. The simplest thing to do is to let these people out. What is easier, ”said the president.

The head of state called the use of civilians as a human shield a crime.
He added that the Russian side is in contact with those who remained on the territory of the plant. The plant is completely isolated, there are no military operations there.

On the decision on February 21,
Putin stressed that Russia was forced to recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR in order to stop the genocide of the local population, arranged by Kiev. This happened after Kyiv refused to comply with the Minsk agreements.

At the same time, the Russian leader drew attention to the fact that both republics became independent by analogy with the decision of the International Court of Justice on Kosovo.
“I personally read all the documents of the International Court of Justice on the situation in Kosovo. I remember very well the decision of the international court, which says that in the exercise of the right to self-determination, a particular territory of any state is not obliged to apply for permission to declare its sovereignty to the central authorities of the country. This was said about Kosovo, and this is the decision of the international court. And this decision was supported by everyone,” the Russian leader said.
In this regard, the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics had the same right, since the corresponding precedent had already been created.
