Dialogue between Kiev and Donbass need in a direct and daily basis, however, readiness to constructively implement the Minsk agreements on the part of Ukraine, said the Russian representative in the contact group on settling the situation in Donbass Boris Gryzlov.

On Wednesday there was held the meeting of the contact group videoconference.

"Today we have observed a direct dialogue between Kiev and Donbass, which is good. To coordinate all actions of such a dialogue is essential in a live, daily format, especially in the modern world. However, readiness to constructively implement the Minsk agreements, Kiev is not" - said Gryzlov.

He noted that Donetsk and Luhansk had to contact the coordinator of OSCE with the request to call Kyiv the participants to talk in the language of the Minsk agreements, performing real points.

"Kiev refuses to discuss political issues in accordance with paragraphs 11 and 12 of the complex of measures on implementation of Minsk agreements with the representatives of Donetsk, Luhansk and going to discuss them with former residents of Donbass, who now reside on the territory of Ukraine. Kiev has decided to negotiate with the people, whom he has appointed. This position actually means that Ukraine's withdrawal from the Minsk process," he said.

Gryzlov added that the Kiev government continues the policy of escalation of the situation in the Donbass. "Ukraine deliberately thwart the process of exchange of detained persons, abandoning its commitment not to prosecute individuals who underwent the exchange procedure, the data earlier," he said.

"The OSCE representatives stated concern over the destruction of SMM in the Petrovsky camera. According to experts, is the result of actions of the APU. This incident limits the capabilities of the OSCE and hides the crimes of the armed forces. For new stations breeding the Kiev side does only the Declaration, while refusing to discuss specific coordinates is just an imitation of the work, not the implementation of decisions", - he said.

According to Gryzlov, Ukraine still does not guarantee security for the entire period of work required to prepare the infrastructure for opening new crossings in Happiness and Gold.

"The representatives of Kiev today unilaterally opened checkpoints on the line of contact. Earlier in queues, and arranged it Kiev, have already been deaths. In hot conditions and the epidemic situation at the checkpoints can be far worse. The unilateral decision of Ukraine to pass through the line of contact, without the consent of Donbass is a provocation. The Kiev government once again uses citizens to obtain a vague dividends and manipulating texture in the negotiation process, while in practice the decision on the cease-fire never made" - said the Russian representative.
