Donetsk, 15 Oct - DAN. Donetsk has protested the abduction of an officer of the LPR Mission to the JCCC, the DPR Minister of Foreign Affairs Natalia Nikonorova said.

"A diplomatic note was sent yesterday to the Special Representatives of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Contact Group, where we have voiced a vehement protest against Kiev's unacceptable actions. Moreover, we have attracted the attention of the mediators to the risk of establishing a dangerous precedent," she said.

Nikonorova added that in the absence of any reaction from international organisations similar situations might happen.

"It would inevitably deteriorate the situation at the contact line making it tens or rather hundred times worse."

The kidnapping of an LPR representative in the Mission to the JCCC might affect repair works at the Donbass critical infrastructure, the DPR Mission to the JCCC said earlier.

The officer was kidnapped this week by two armed members of the Ukrainian army in the Zolotoye area as he was observing the ceasefire during the clearance of a road at the Pervomaisk-Zolotoye checkpoint. *ot
