Yatsenyuk at Kyiv Security Forum: ‘Putin’s eyes are full of blood’

The Normandy Four countries and the United States should make Russia fulfill the Minsk agreements in the Ukrainian interpretation or they should set a condition that Russia signs a new international legal agreement with security guarantees for Ukraine and the guarantees of the return of Donbas and Crimea, according to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the head of the Kyiv Security Forum (KSF) and Ukraine’s prime minister in 2014-2016.

Yatsenyuk stressed at the Kyiv Security Forum on October 23 that the Minsk process had fulfilled its function. He recalled that first of all, the Minsk agreements were aimed at stopping large-scale Russian aggression against Ukraine.

“The Minsk agreements are not being fulfilled for only one reason – they are not being fulfilled by Russia. There is a very clear violator of the agreement – Putin,” he said.

He said that today there are only two options on the table: “The first option is when the Normandy format countries, namely Ukraine, Germany and France, as well as the United States, have a unified interpretation of the Minsk agreements and force Russia to execute the Minsk agreements in the Ukrainian interpretation.”

Another option, Yatsenyuk stressed, is that Ukraine, Germany and France, together with the United States, declare that Russia does not fulfill and is not going to fulfill the Minsk agreements.

“Then these countries, together with Ukraine, must demand that Russia sign a new international legal agreement with security guarantees for Ukraine, with the guarantees for the return of Donetsk, Luhansk and Crimea as sovereign territories of the Ukrainian state,” he said.

“I do not believe that it’s possible to achieve peace in Ukraine through talks with Putin and the attempts to see something in Putin’s eyes. What can you see in a person’s eyes if those eyes are bloodshot? Putin’s eyes are full of blood. One cannot see anything there, except suffering, war, oppression and fight against Ukraine,” Yatsenyuk said.

  • Nice words Yats, and good ideas, but I’m afraid they will come to nothing. The Germans and Frogs would never agree to anything that might upset Putin.

  • Yulia, Yats and Petro should form a government. The clown is a traitor. Sadly Ukraine can’t confide in the krauts, they are on Gazprom’s payroll.

    • Never work. Yats and Poro don’t get on, Poro and Tymoshenko don’t get on, it would be total chaos.

      • I would say at the moment we already have a total chaos with one reformer after another being canned by Zelenskovich.

        • Ukraine need someone to remove power from oligarchs and the Russian party in Ukraine. The rest would take care of itself.

          • That’s simple, Ukraine just needs to follow the laws they already have on the books about citizens having more than one passport. Or, since the trend is going towards dual-citizenship, use that as a vehicle to allow dual citizenship but disallow it in the case of an aggressor nation.
            Then those nasty ruSSo-oligarchs will have to make a choice or have everything confiscated and go to prison or both. Remember how well the Marshall law went for a short time when Poroshenko proclaimed it? No men from Moskovia came into Ukraine under 60 years old and things were quiet for a month. Make it law.

  • Personally, I think that Yatsenyuk would be a good president. Why won’t he run for office?

    Excellent words! No sane person can look into Pew-tin’s eyes even if he or she hacks off their legs by the knees to be able to see eye-to-eye with the evil gnome.
