The next video conference of the contact group on the settlement in the east of Ukraine was on the verge of collapse due to the position of Kiev. This was stated by the representative of Russia in the contact group for the Donbass, Boris Gryzlov. His words lead TASS.
Gryzlov said that by such actions Kiev grossly violates the UN Security Council resolution. According to him, the Ukrainian authorities are deceiving the hopes of most citizens and embark on the dangerous path of their predecessors. “A party that calls itself the“ Servant of the people ”risks becoming a party to the“ Servant of the war ”,” he emphasized.
Earlier, the head of the office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak declaredthat Kiev decided to include immigrants from Donbass in the negotiation process as part of a tripartite contact group in Minsk.
In March, Ermak emphasizedthat Kiev has never conducted and will not conduct a direct dialogue with Donetsk and Lugansk. At the same time, Alexey Reznikov, Deputy Prime Minister for the Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories notedthat the Ukrainian authorities will not fix the special status of Donbass in the Constitution, as it is assumed by the Minsk agreements.
