The reluctance of Kiev to implement the military aspects of the Minsk agreements could derail efforts for a peaceful settlement, said Deputy permanent envoy of the Russian Federation to the OSCE Andrey Rudenko.
according to him, the Ukrainian side is directly responsible for the violation of the signing reached in the framework of the Contact group on 3 and 4 August in Minsk agreements on the demilitarization of Shirokino.
"in response to the goodwill gesture of the militias that have independently taken on 3 km from the contact line on their creatures And military equipment to a caliber of less than 100 mm - observers of the special monitoring mission of the OSCE recorded this, the Ukrainian side had not only answered it, but even more increasing its military buildup. There is now regular troops, reinforced by fresh divisions of the marine corps. Returned And sadly known for the volunteer part, " said Rudenko, speaking at the meeting of the OSCE permanent Council.
According to policy, " pushing for fresh rules, the Ukrainian side at the last moment did not want to sign in fact already announced the agreement on the withdrawal from the line of contact arms calibre less than 100 mm ".
"This shows the reluctance of Kiev to implement the military aspects of the Minsk package of measures And proceed to the execution of the political aspects of the agreements. Instead of finding solutions And dialogue with the representatives of Donetsk And Lugansk, who signed the Minsk agreement - open simulation or simulation process. And the hanging of guilt for a violation of the agreements on the militia And the Russian Federation ", - said Rudenko.
He added that such actions of the Ukrainian side have the opportunity " to undermine the diplomatic efforts that have been spent to promote a peaceful settlement within the framework of the Minsk process, essentially to throw away the past, lead to the resumption of full-scale hostilities."" This is unacceptable, " concluded the diplomat.
