Gryzlov said that the purpose of Kiev — the extension of sanctions against Russia

There is a sense that the purpose of Kiev - is not the conflict resolution and reintegration of Donbass, and the extension of sanctions against Russia, said the Ambassador of Russia in the contact group on Donbass Boris Gryzlov following the results of meeting of the group.

"The focus of today's meeting of the contact group was the cornerstone issues of conflict settlement in the Donbass – the law on the special status and measures to monitor the ceasefire," - said Gryzlov to journalists.

According to him, Ukraine is once again delaying the adoption of necessary decisions.

"It seems that the main goal of Kiev on the negotiations – not a comprehensive political settlement and not the reintegration of Donbass. We know the position of the Ukrainian leadership to keep sanctions against Russia under any pretext," - said Gryzlov.
