The advisor to the NSDC Secretary commented on his Facebook page: "Some people do not need peace. They want war. Because war is business and big money. They ruined the presentation, but they won't stop us from moving towards peace. We continue our work and our dialogue. Thank you, everyone who came today! Journalists, our like-minded people, and partners! Peace be with us".

The platform for reconciliation and unity was created within the framework of the initiatives of President Zelenky on politics in the Donbass.
