He warned that any attempt to “twist” arrangement in order for the reintegration took place on Russian terms, “doomed to failure”. Kuleba urged Russia to begin implementation of the “Minsk-2” with a full and comprehensive ceasefire in the Donbass.
“the Point. And to put the Minsk agreement on its head and start to demand some political reforms in Ukraine transformation before performing all of the other items, it is literally passing the buck "with the blame on others"” — he said and added that he will put before the foreign Ministers “channel four” the issue of inadmissibility of statements of the representative of Russia in the Trilateral contact group (TAG) Boris Gryzlov.
July 9, Deputy Prime Minister for reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov stated that the Minsk agreements have lost relevance. As explained by the politician, they do not correspond to current realities. Time expired, and the agreement was never implemented, he added. Earlier, the head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on foreign Affairs Oleksandr Merezhko said that “Minsk-2” is a recommendation.
Such a statement often began to sound after this in March by the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky promises to withdraw from Minsk agreement if the “channel four” during the year will not reach real results in the Donbass.
