“This again, as they say, is a new introduction. In the process, new introductory entries from the Ukrainian side come. Here we can safely say that, of course, such new introductory ones are quite unexpected for Moscow, for Berlin, and for Paris. Therefore, it is still difficult to comment here, ”he told reporters.

The Kremlin representative also added that it is not yet clear whether this means a departure from the Minsk agreements, the Minsk action plan, earlier commitments and previously signed signatures.

Earlier, Daria Olifer, spokeswoman for the representative of Ukraine in the tripartite contact group Leonid Kuchma, announced her intention to Kiev to implement the political part of the Minsk agreements only after the dissolution of the DPR and LPR, as well as the withdrawal of forces in the Donbass.

Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Federation Council’s committee on international affairs, called this statement extremely strange, noting that this requirement was a “flagrant violation”.
