Surkov lost temper during Normandy Format talks in Paris

After Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told Russian President Vladimir Putin “to just withdraw their troops from the occupied Donbass”, the adviser to the Russian President Vladislav Surkov began to shout and hurl papers, said Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on the TV the program “Freedom of Speech by Savik Shuster.”

“There was a very clear moment. Putin says, “Let’s withdraw troops along the entire line of demarcation.” Volodymyr Zelensky says: “Well, one moment. I believe we could continue withdrawing like this for 20 years. Can’t you just withdraw your troops from there?” Simple conversation,” Avakov said.

According to Avakov, at that point, they decided that this issue would be discussed separately by the advisers.

“The advisers came out, and we saw Mr. Surkov was losing it. He said, “How is that? We didn’t agree on that!” He started throwing papers, and so on. Vadim (Prystaiko, Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs) was like a rock, Yermak (adviser to the President of Ukraine) was like a rock, we were all… and he was upset,” Avakov added.

The representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas, Oleksii Reznikov said, “Surkov was annoyed that the Ukrainian delegation was speaking Ukrainian”.

When asked who exactly told Surkov from Ukrainian side, that Zelensky would be compliant, Reznikov said that it was not someone from the Ukrainian delegation.

“They were negotiating with representatives of the French and German sides. They may have had a communication problem there. Surkov thought they had a deal there, and that they would agree with us too. That’s it. I think there was a loss of signal,” Reznikov explained.

Earlier, Oleksii Reznikov, said that by the next summit of the “Normandy Four” Kyiv will prepare its proposals to change the Minsk agreements.

  • “Surkov was annoyed that the Ukrainian delegation was speaking Ukrainian”.

    Perhaps this asswipe can learn Ukrainian in time for the next meeting.

  • Putinazi vermin lost his temper? They are such cunts. I certainly couldn’t have kept mine. With no help coming or likely to come in the future, Ukraine has no choice but to try to build, on a shoestring, a military powerful enough to force the putinazi scum off its land. If it takes 10 or 20 years, so be it. It’s no good waiting for the little shitweasel to die: he will be replaced by another piece of shit who may even be worse.

  • Perhaps this juvenile imbecile should have done what the idiot Krushchev had once done in the UN; bang his shoe on the table like a judge’s gavel. I think the people present would have fled the chamber from the stink or passed out. Ruskie mafioso are such morons!

  • This was to be his moment of triumph.
    The end of the long road that started in April of 2014 was coming to an end.
    The silly Clown that the ukrainians had elected was going to come to Putin on bent knee.
    And then Zelensky brought up securing the borders prior to elections.
    And it all went to shit.
    I feel genuinely sorry for him, having all is hopes and dreams shattered…

    Who am I kidding!
    I and laughing so hard I almost puked.
    Suffer beeotch!
