The Ukrainian foreign Ministry assessed the condition of the Minsk agreements

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said that "the Minsk process" to resolve the conflict in the Donbass died and "rests on the German-French ventilator".

On Friday Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories Alexey Reznikov said that the Minsk agreements are worthless from the international legal point of view, however, the Belarusian capital is to be used as a platform for the conflict settlement in the Donbass.

"I would say, "Minsk" was not dead, but it keeps Ukraine on the German-French ventilator. Sorry for the black humor," - said Kuleba in an interview with "UKRINFORM".

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict were about 13 thousand people. The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, including during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
