The format of talks on resolving the conflict in Donbas can change, only if you agree all the participants in the current negotiations, said the Ambassador for special assignments of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba.
The problem of settlement of the Ukrainian fall under negotiation in different formats, for example, in the "Normandy format" (Russia, France, Germany, Ukraine). In the Polish capital was proposed to move the dialogues in the " Geneva Format ", i.e. when the support of the USA and Poland, as neighboring Russia and Ukraine in the country. However, agreements to stop the fire turned out to only be achieved in Minsk during the meeting of the contact group with the mediation of Russia and the OSCE. The Minister for foreign Affairs of Germany called the Minsk Format only chance for a settlement in the Donbass. And the Russian Ambassador to Belarus Alexander Surikov said that the development of new formats of negotiations may undermine the Minsk consensus.
"a lot of times the head of Ukraine, other Commissioners spoke about the fact that we are ready to expand formats, return to the" Geneva format ", it's interesting, we are ready to discuss everything. But the question is, what is needed is a consensus on the part of all participants in the process to change the format, and we have no doubt that the support of Poland, have not. But now this Format, and it will be changed when in truth all associated parties will be able to come to a common opinion. The same is true for our lives, where the solution does not depend on one and not from 2, And from all, "said Kuleba in the air" ".
currently permanent venue for meetings of the contact group Ukraine-Russia-OSCE with the authorized Donetsk and Lugansk national republics is Minsk.
