#Commentary of Vladislav Berdichevsky on destructive statements of Ukrainian politicians about implementation of Minsk agreements
New Ukrainian power continues the policy of the ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, which is why the full implementation of the Minsk agreement is impossible for Ukraine. This was stated by Deputy of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladislav Berdichvsky in an interview to RIA Novosti.
ʺInstead of adopting a law on absolute amnesty and entering into direct negotiations with representatives of the DPR and the LPR on special status and local elections, we are witnessing Zelensky, Pristaiko and Kuchma and other Ukrainian politicians insinuating and talking in order to pull the wool over the eyes of the leadership of the Republics and guarantors of “Minsk-2”.
Therefore, we are doomed to watch Kiev’s attempts to pervert the nature of the agreements by lies and provocations and draw back from the agreements without compromising its statehood,ʺ Vladislav Berdichevsky said.
It should be reminded that the President of Ukraine Zelensky stated earlier that it was premature to talk about elections in the territories, which were not under Ukraine’s control, as it was necessary to hold a meeting in the Normandy format. Meanwhile, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim Pristaiko reported that Ukraine was looking forward to hold the local elections including the elections in the territory of Donbass not controlled by Kiev until 2020.
