Ukraine’s statements about changing the negotiating platform on Donbass are essentially a breakdown of negotiations under a fictitious and meaningless pretext, the Kiev regime would not have dared to do this if it had not been pushed by “Western partners”, said Elena Panina, a member of the State Duma’s international affairs committee.
Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov said on Monday that Kiev would not send members of its delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on Donbass to Minsk. According to him, in order to continue the negotiation process, it is necessary “to look for another country, another city.”
“We must be aware that the Kiev whims in relation to Belarus are just a far-fetched reason, where everything is sewn with white threads. There are absolutely no reasonable motives, we are dealing with the same Belarus as in 2015. Kiev is beautiful understand that it will be almost impossible to find a new negotiating platform, “said the deputy to RIA Novosti.
According to Panina, in fact, such a statement is a deliberate step by the official Kiev to withdraw from the Minsk process.
“In fact, we are talking about the liquidation of the negotiating platform, which for six years was quite satisfactory for the parties to the negotiations. In fact, this is a breakdown of negotiations under a fictitious and meaningless pretext. he would not be pushed by “Western partners.” At the same time, history teaches that always and everywhere a breakdown in negotiations leads to the outbreak of war, “the parliamentarian concluded.
