Miroslav Rudenko: Kiev authorities do not seek ways to resolve conflict in Donbass
Statements of Ukrainian officials can be regarded as confirmation of the fact that the official Kiev does not intend to seek ways to resolve the conflict. This was stated in his commentary by the deputy of the DPR People’s Council, Miroslav Rudenko.
“With his statements that the Steinmeier’s formula will not be approved at the next meeting in the “Normandy format,” Mr. Kuchma once again confirms that Ukraine is not going to implement the Minsk agreements. At that, the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Vadim Pristayko, stated that this document does not at all provide for a special status for Donbass, but speaks exclusively about decentralization in Ukraine.
I want to advise Mr. Pristayko to be more attentive to international treaties and finally read the Minsk agreements, where it is written black and white about a special status, a complete amnesty, and the lifting of blockades from Donbass. It is unfortunate that Ukrainian officials of this level make such “blunders” in their statements. We can regard their statements in such a way that Kiev has not changed its warlike rhetoric regarding the People’s Republics and does not intend to seek ways to resolve the conflict.
I will allow myself to remind Ukrainian politicians that the consolidation of the special status of Donbass in the Constitution of Ukraine, the coordination of these amendments with representatives of the Republics and the consolidation of legislative guarantees of security for the residents of the Republic, that is, a full amnesty, are the basic requirements for establishing a complete and comprehensive peace in Donbass,” Miroslav Rudenko emphasized.
