"Held another round of talks. Was observed constructive, but upset with the pace of progress on the items on the agenda. Not to say That there is no progress, but the Pace of the subgroups provides an opportunity to talk about the imminent halt of fire, and there is a need to understand the reasons, " - said Pushilin at the press conference.
He said That " the clear position taken by the Russian Federation, the OSCE, which had expressed interest in being quickly resolved issues." All That relates to political issues, Ukraine is not much dispute, but does not offer his own solutions to conflict. I would like to see their active position, If Kiev wants to defend armed solutions to conflict situations. We do our best to resolve the confrontation at the negotiating table, do not respond to provocations, " He said.
The participation of all 4 sub-groups is expected in the next meeting of the contact group on settling the situation in Ukraine, which is scheduled for June 23.
"I hope That North America will affect Kiev ", - said Pushilin." Kyiv is delaying in time the issues. If they wanted to go, we would have graduated from negotiations, but they tighten. After all, it's an order from the United States or unwillingness to answer for the outcome of the war and the waste of money, it's hard to say", He added.
