USA insisting to the end of 2016 Kiev to fulfill the Minsk agreement. To do this Washington intends to maximally coordinate their efforts with the “channel format”, said April 27, assistant Secretary of state Victoria Nuland. The one which is two and a half years ago, handed out cookies to the protesters on the Maidan.
On Tuesday, Nuland gave the command of the Ukrainian parliamentary parties to urgently reform the Constitution to give Donbass special status and Amnesty to all combatants in the East of Ukraine. According to her, if the Ukrainian authorities will not hesitate, to elect local authorities in Donetsk and Lugansk you can in July. Nuland stressed that the alternative to the Minsk agreements and, as bad as they were, do they still have, because Ukraine signed them. In addition, the U.S. representative said that if the points of the peace Treaty will be completed before the end of 2016, in January 2017 with Russia will lift all sanctions, not on Crimea.
In the media the words of Victoria Nuland got through Wojcicki, a member of the faction “Self-help”. Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada is sure that Kiev should ignore the direction of the West and to recognize the Donbass occupied territory, and Russia — occupier. According to her, to perform the Minsk agreement means to surrender to the enemy. There is no doubt that this approach will find plenty of supporters in the Verkhovna Rada. In particular, abolish the provisions on the special status of Donbass, said the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrei Parubiy. He calls for the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia.
But every day continue the war and delay in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the gap between the Donbass and Kiev increases. In 2014, the Donetsk and Luhansk demanded to decentralize. Not listen to them, the war began, and here come the calls for the federalization of Ukraine. But after that Kiev has not made the proper conclusions and continued to swing the negotiation process. Now the head of the DND Alexander Zakharchenko says that Ukraine need to gather again, and on the basis of the Confederation.
“The US and Kiev can go on the substitution of concepts: the Ukrainian authorities will vote in favor of all the laws, but a desired interpretation, and without coordination with the DNI and LC. In this case, the Minsk process would be in serious jeopardy, as the West will declare that Kiev has fulfilled its part of the agreements, and Russia, DNR and LC will not agree with this,” he warned in an interview with “MK” Director of the Ukrainian branch of Institute of CIS countries Denis DENISOV.
Meanwhile, in the next few weeks Paris is planning to convene a new meeting of foreign Ministers of the countries participating in the “Normandy format” to remind the Ukrainian authorities about the urgency of the implementation of the Minsk agreements. French diplomats believe that before Kiev could not go this route because of the position of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, but with the appointment of Volodymyr Groisman opened the road.
As told to “MK” head of the Fund “Ukrainian politics Konstantin BONDARENKO, if Kiev will not listen to the opinion of the West, it is waiting for the unenviable fate: “against the background of dissatisfaction with the EU anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the USA and the presidential elections in America Washington decided to prove that his policies brings success, and this put pressure on Kiev. But Ukrainian politicians do not want to implement the Minsk agreements. The only ally Petro Poroshenko in the Verkhovna Rada — the party of war “the popular front”. Attempts to get her to vote for the special status, the new Constitution and so on will lead to the split of the coalition. As a result of the new elections the party of the President of Ukraine is at best fourth place. You can make an Alliance with the Opposition bloc, but it would be tantamount to suicide Poroshenko, given the number of armed radicals in the country. But all that the West considers the personal problem of the Ukrainian authorities. Therefore, until the end of 2016 we may see sanctions against Ukrainian politicians. For the USA it is common practice, once the Taliban were their allies, and now their path is Kiev.”Related posts:
