Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs:
“The threats of Klimkin to abandon Minsk-2 in the event of the restoration of the rights of the Russian delegation to PACE are vulgar blackmail. However, his words characterize the entire era of the outgoing president’s and his team’s rule. The world in their own country is not important, the main thing is to please the transatlantic tutors and worse than Russia at the international venues where this is possible. The implementation of the Minsk agreements was so openly sabotaged by Poroshenko and Co., here Klimkin did not promise anything new.
I hope that the new leadership of Ukraine, first of all, will review the policy regarding the conflict in the Donbas. This civil war does not at all fit with human principles in the 21st century. And this is happening in the center of enlightened Europe under the guise of European values. “
