At a joint press conference of the heads of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, DPR leader Alexander Zakharchenko harshly responded to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission’s deputy head, Alexander Hug.
When Hug claimed that both sides of the conflict, "including the two of you [Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky]" should make weapons "disappear" from the frontline, DPR head Zakharchenko interrupted the translator and responded:
“I’m sorry, but we need to do the following: ensure the security of our states, the safety of our citizens, and we don’t owe anyone anything else.”
Zakharchenko’s words were met with the audience’s eruption into applause.
