I express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Andrey and I appeal to EVERYONE related to the development of the situation in the southeastern Ukraine to stop the fratricidal war! Stop the fatalities of innocent people, find strength, courage and good sense to find a proper and humane way out of the mortal conflict,” Ms Pamfilova said.
