The extension of the validity of the Minsk agreement not make sense, since the postponement of their execution increases the probability of the cast to the " frozen conflict ", said foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in a conversation with the Agency.
in the last month of summer from the DNR received a proposal to extend the deadline for implementation of the Minsk agreements for 2016, as their implementation before the end of the current year, as provided in February approved a package of measures, is unlikely.
"(The extension makes no sense), because each party to the Normandy format should fulfil their obligations, which they indicated in the Minsk agreements. Someone performs them, and someone for some reason - no, so no need to get out of compliance. Just need to fulfil the obligation, and not ever, and now, because if they do someday, we will quickly come to frozen conflict ", - quotes Agency Klimkin.
The Ukrainian authorities in April of last year began military action against the self-proclaimed LNR and DND. According to the final data of the UN, the victims of the conflict were about 7, 9 thousand people. The settlement of the situation in the Donbas region is discussed, as well as among them, during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which since September of last year had already taken 3 of the document, regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict.
The last document from February 12 - in addition to the ceasefire, withdrawal of heavy weapons and the creation of security zones, obliges the Ukrainian Authorities to engage in direct dialogue with the authorized DND and LNR, for example, on the issue of holding local elections, entering into the Constitution of Ukraine of change, involving the decentralization of Power, as well as on the issue of legislative recognition of special status " of Donetsk and Lugansk regions ".
