Kremlin ready for Ukraine to abandon Minsk agreements

Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that the conflict settlement process would be deprived of a negotiating base if such a scenario was chosen

Russia is ready for Ukraine to renounce the Minsk agreements, but warns that neither Berlin, nor Paris, nor Moscow will like such a decision. This was stated by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov on the air of Russia-1 TV channel, TASS reports.

You cannot force anything, but neither Berlin, nor Paris, nor Moscow will obviously like Ukraine’s renouncement of the Minsk complex of measures,” Peskov said, answering questions about Russia’s readiness to abandon the Minsk agreements.

In addition, he warned that if that happened, the conflict settlement process will be deprived of a negotiating base, and a new one, in the form of another document, would be extremely difficult to create.

As we reported earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the deterioration of relations between Russia and Ukraine was not connected with the annexation of Crimea.

The fact that our relations with Ukraine have deteriorated in principle is not connected with Crimea,” he said.

  • “Immediate and full ceasefire in particular districts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine and its strict fulfilment as of 00:00 midnight EET on 15 February 2015.”

    This is article one on the Minsk agreement. Why the hell should Ukraine abide by a one sided Russian agreement, when after 5 years, Russia have still not implemented a ceasefire?

    • Their tactic is pretty obvious now. They stall and complain until Ukraine loses patience and then accuse Ukraine of pulling out of something the Moskali never supported. Then it looks like Ukraine pulled out when Moskovia was never in it.
      This is all an attempt to discredit Ukraine and put yourself forward as the problem solver. The Moskali have tried to provoke open war for more than 6 years (like what happened in Georgia) and Ukraine has been perfect every day. It seems clear the Moskali are losing patience.

      • I’ve said all along, Ukraine should just sit tight. What have they to lose? Russia occupy Crimea and Donbas, so a military option is not on the table, but dragging the situation out, is costing the dwarf billions every year to support Donbas and Crimea.
