Alexander Kamyshov: Normandy format summit is under threat of failure due to sabotage by Ukrainian side
Kiev has jeopardized a meeting of the Normandy Four due to a sabotage of the separation of forces. This was stated by Deputy of the DPR’s People’s Council Alexander Kamyshov in his commentary to the Donetsk News Agency.
ʺToday, on the day of the separation of forces, we are witnessing a sabotage of the peaceful settlement by the Ukrainian side. Kiev continues making up some kind of “complexities” and “conditions” and delaying the implementation of the documents signed in Minsk in all kinds of ways. Thus, it is not the first time when a summit of the Normandy format was jeopardized by Ukraine.
President Zelensky is trying to represent the signing of the Steinmeier formula as a diplomatic victory for Ukraine. For this purpose, he is deliberately distorts the meaning of the formula and declares that local elections will be held with Ukrainian candidates and there will be no dialogue with the Republics of Donbass. I would like to remind Zelensky that the harmonization of the law on a special status and other normative legal acts, which concern the territories of the DPR and LPR, with the People’s Republics, is spelled out in the Minsk agreements,ʺ Alexander Kamyshov said.
