Russian special envoy appreciated the statements of Kiev about the Minsk agreement

Statements on revision of the Minsk agreements on the settlement in Donbass or "plan B" Kiev by any means wants to get away from their obligations, said the special representative of Russia in the contact group on settling the situation in Ukraine Azamat kulmuhametov.

Earlier, according to the envoy of Russia in the contact group in Minsk of Boris Gryzlov, Deputy head of the Ukrainian delegation in the group of Oleksandr Merezhko said that the Minsk package of measures is a recommendation and does not impose on Ukraine any commitments. As Gryzlov noted, we are talking about another attempt to destroy the negotiation process, and if this is indeed the official position of Kiev, it is a direct path to the "freezing" of the conflict.

"Drew attention to the words of the master and Margarita, which is obviously contrary to common sense. The status of the Minsk agreements approved by resolution of the UN Security Council, which recognizes them as the sole basis for resolving the conflict in Ukraine", - said the kulmuhametov in an interview with RIA Novosti.

As stressed by the special representative of the Russian Federation, deplorable that statements about the need to revise the Minsk agreements, their unreliability, or about a plan "B" punctually heard from the lips of Ukrainian politicians of different levels.

"Such statements reflect the essence of the approaches of Ukraine reached in Minsk agreements: any way to avoid fulfilling obligations recorded there. In fact, the former Ukrainian leadership almost immediately after the signing has made it clear that to do nothing on purpose. Unfortunately, it has not changed position, and with the arrival of President Vladimir Zelensky, who promised to end the six year conflict," he said.

Earlier Ukrainian Vice-Premier for reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories Alexey Reznikov said that the Minsk agreement is largely irrelevant. Before the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said that the Minsk process on the settlement of the conflict in the Donbas has not yet died and "rests on the German-French ventilator".
