The Russian Federation consistently defends its position on the deployment of the UN contingent, its goal is the peaceful settlement of the civil conflict in the Donbass, the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the Permanent Representative of the DPR to the talks of the Contact Group in Minsk, Denis Pushilin, stated on the Russian First Channel’s programme “Time will tell”.
“Russia initially put forward conditions that are acceptable to resolve the conflict peacefully. I doubt that Russia has revised its principles regarding the peacekeeping mission, which means that something has changed in the position of the United States. What will change in fact will become clear after the next meetings of the Contact Group in Minsk.
I also think that the discussion of the law on ‘reintegration’ took place from a negative point of view,” Denis Pushilin said, responding to a question about the meeting of Vladislav Surkov and Kurt Volker.
