Maas: Russia is party to conflict in eastern Ukraine

10.06.2021 09:

Russian Federation is a party to the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, and it must show the best political will to achieve a peaceful settlement.

“We need political will on such important issues as stabilizing the regime of silence. To do this, first of all, Moscow must use its influence in eastern Ukraine. Moscow is a party to this conflict. And we have expectations of such Moscow’s position,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said during a joint press conference with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba in Berlin on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

According to the German minister, a constructive approach is needed in the Normandy format negotiations. Within the framework of a peaceful settlement, it is important to demonstrate tangible progress in security and humanitarian spheres, disengagement of troops, mine action, exchange of detainees, and implementation of the so-called Steinmeier formula.

As Maas noted, Germany is concerned about the security situation in eastern Ukraine which remains unsatisfactory in recent months.

In addition, the German minister reminded of the large-scale build-up of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine in the spring. According to him, Ukraine “reacted very prudently and its actions were aimed at de-escalation.” “The right way was chosen to solve this situation,” he added.

Maas also encouraged Kyiv’s appeal to the OSCE on this issue and assured Ukraine of support from Germany, EU, NATO, and G7.

As reported, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba made a working visit to Germany on June 8-9. During the visit, Kuleba held talks with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and held bilateral meetings with parliamentary leadership, members of the government, heads of leading political parties, and representatives of the German business community.

  • But because we need cheap gas from Russia, we don’t give weapons to Ukraine, according Maas.

  • ““We need political will on such important issues as stabilizing the regime of silence. To do this, first of all, Moscow must use its influence in eastern Ukraine. Moscow is a party to this conflict.”

    You contradict yourself there, Putin lover. If Moscow is a party to this conflict, as everyone in the world knows, They don’t need to use their influence, they need to GTF out of Ukraine. Once the overwhelming evidence against Muscovy delivers a guilty verdict in the MH17 trial. Muscovy can no longer be included as “mediator” in any Normandy 4, Minsk, or any other BS agreements. Muscovy have to be put on trial for terrorism and war crimes committed in Ukraine.

    Grade school children have more sense than the fools the moronic Europeans vote into office. I refuse to read anything that this idiot Maas has to say or any other kraut politician for that matter. They are the dumbest cocksuckers on earth and never say anything that resembles intelligence or even common sense.
