The Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine, Anatolii Matios, comparing the events in the Donbass with the civil war in Spain, expressed the opinion that the parties will have to negotiate to establish peace in the former region of Ukraine, Tass reports.

“Only Ukrainians should come to an agreement, as in the case of any classical war, any war does not end with a victory, it ends with the dead and wounded, accordingly, it will have to be negotiated, as if someone did not remind me the day after the broadcast, but I consider that without real understanding by different parts of Ukrainian society of what’s going to be repeated without analysis and comprehension of the civil war in Spain,* it will be necessary to repeat the Spanish experience,” he said.

Earlier it became known that Kiev intends to use the experience of Canada’s peacekeeping missions about sending UN peacekeepers to the Donbass. 

Before that, the Prime Minister of Croatia, Andrei Plenkovic, suggested that Ukraine use Croatia’s precedent** in the Donbass.
*It appears to be a threat. I.e, negotiate or die: The Franco Fascists won a complete victory, and then “Franco implemented policies that were responsible for the repression and deaths of as many as 400,000 political opponents and dissenters,[5][6][7][8][9] through the use of forced labor and executions in the concentration camps his regime operated.” — Franco in Wikipedia
**Croatian precedent: “The war effectively ended in August 1995 with a decisive victory by Croatia.[82] This was accompanied by the exodus of about 200,000 Serbs from the rebel territories, whose lands were subsequently settled by Croat refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina. — wikipedia Croatia entry.
