As long as Kiev will try to cover up internal problems, " the Russian aggression ", to move forward under the Minsk agreements will be difficult, said Russia's permanent representative to the OSCE Alexander Lukashevich.
"It's time to look at the situation soberly. An alternative to the "package of measures" there is no plan " B " does not happen. Minsk consensus – this is not a defeat and not a capitulation of Ukraine, as trying to serve the nationalists, and its salvation, the ability to implement national reconciliation and harmony among all factions of Ukrainian society, between all regions of Ukraine", where he said, speaking at a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna. The text of his speech posted on the Internet representative office of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
"However, while in Kiev will try to cover all of the many internal problems of the so-called Russian aggression, moving forward will be difficult," – showed it. According to Lukashevich, " now comes the moment when our common determined efforts have the opportunity to play a crucial role in the translation of the situation in Ukraine from degradation to stabilization."" We are actively working on this in different formats – the Contact group in the Normandy format, with other countries having great influence on Kiev. The longer will remain the condescending attitude to the unwillingness or inability of the Kiev authorities to perform Minsk consensus, the longer and harder it will be to go peace process – at the expense of the suffering of the population of Donbass, the inhabitants of the rest of Ukraine ". Relations between Ukraine and Russia worsened against the background of the situation in the Donbass. In January 2015, the Parliament of Ukraine at an extraordinary meeting to discuss the deteriorating situation in the Donbass, took the message that Russia is called " an aggressor country ". The message was supported by 271 people's choice at the required minimum of 226 votes.
