After attempts of the Ukrainian saboteurs to organize terrorist attacks in the Crimea meeting in the Normandy format is meaningless, said Russian President Vladimir Putin. Kiev did not fail to use the words of Putin and accused him of trying to sabotage the process of negotiations on the Donbass. In reality, the Ukrainian party risks losing a last chance for reconciliation with the DNI and LC.
Subversive actions in the Crimea, Kiev can do to undermine the Minsk process, fear of the observers. Stating that the negotiations “Norman four” are meaningless for this kind of behaviour of Ukraine, said Vladimir Putin. The meeting was to be held on 4-5 September in China, on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Participation in it was to take Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany.
“Ukraine is not going to fulfill Minsk agreements and moves to a direct hostile attitude towards Russia”
“In these circumstances, to meet in the Normandy format, especially in China, is pointless because, apparently, the people who took in due time the authorities in Kiev and continue to hold her back, instead of finding compromise, instead of looking for ways of peaceful settlement, moved on to practice terror,” – said the Russian President the day before, after a meeting with President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan.
“It’s a stupid criminal act, what we saw in Crimea. Stupid because it is impossible to have a positive impact on people living in the Crimea, and the criminal because people died,” said the President. Putin assured that the Russian side will take all necessary to punish those responsible for the deaths of people. “Of course, by such things take place will not” – he said. “This exercise in futility, this is a very dangerous game,” the President added.
He also appealed to the West with a request to affect Kiev, if one is interested in solving the Ukrainian question. “I would like to reach out to our American and European partners. I think all it is already obvious that the current authorities in Kiev are not looking for solutions through negotiation and move on to terror. This is a very disturbing thing, ” said Putin. – Those who support the current authorities in Kiev, has yet to decide what they want their clients and then engage in provocations of this kind, or they want a real peace settlement”.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said yesterday that the charges of terrorist attack is a “fantasy”. For more detailed “explanations” later made Secretary of the NSDC Oleksandr Turchynov. “Putin’s statement, which was a continuation of the hysterical fictions of the FSB, suggests that Russia is systematically preparing for the escalation of the situation and the disruption of the Minsk agreements, – quotes the portal “Today”. – To go on further escalation of the conflict, Putin has not invented anything better than cheap theatrical productions FSB with improvised explosive devices,” – said Turchinov, in fact accusing Russia of staging the attacks.
He was joined by adviser to the interior Minister Zoryan Shkiryak. “As for yesterday’s false statements to Putin, it is done in the best traditions of the KGB and, in fact, the commune of fascist ideology. When you need to justify any aggressive action against one side or another, made such a fake RAID on the emergence of some terrorists Ukrainian, etc. in Fact, in order to further justify the escalation of the conflict, which is probably waiting for us in the East, especially on the eve of independence Day”, – he declared on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
Western leaders while they prefer to refrain from statements about sabotage in the Crimea.
“The Minsk decisions insolently ignored”
Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Kalashnikov (Communist party) believes that Russia for a long time should withdraw from the negotiation process in the format “Norman Quartet.” “Only in the first moments of some hope for the talks was still… Remember the example with Yanukovych. Was about the same “channel four”, just sent myself an observer. The agreement reached with Yanukovych, the agreement was violated the very next day. Putin also probably realized over time that there is no constructive process, and there is a delay in time. The Minsk decisions insolently ignored,” said Kalashnikov, the newspaper VIEW, adding that France and Germany were closed to see it all the time and tried to find the source of problems in Russia.
He is convinced that after the story of the capture of Ukrainian saboteurs in Crimea Russia has a good reason to terminate his participation in the Normandy format. As an analogy he pointed to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who first “had had enough with Europe and America, and then he very nearly slammed”.
The Normandy format is now obsolete, because in the current situation we almost betrayed its South-East, klyunuv on the peace-loving rhetoric. And now no one has any illusions. The behaviour of these so called politicians against appeasement or appeals to Poroshenko and others concerning the implementation of the Minsk agreement”, – said the Deputy.
However, Kalashnikov believes that Putin, with his restraint “will not be out of the Normandy format”. “And the fact that he won’t meet in this format at the G20 in China is another question. But he and the President, to be restrained,” – said the Deputy.
According to a member of the Public chamber, the President of Fund of research of problems of democracy Maxim Grigoriev, the channel format is the only format that is supported by various parties, “none of them wants to be the initiator of the rejection of the Minsk agreements”.
“However, after all that Russia will do enough serious conclusions. Apparently, between Russia and Ukraine is quite a serious non-public dialog in which the Ukrainian government and Poroshenko are absolutely in a different format – in the format of requesting party, the party that asks that Russia somehow did not take to Ukraine actions which will lead to serious consequences for Ukraine… I think that after all these hostile actions of the Ukrainian non-public format, in large measure, for Poroshenko will be lost,” said Grigoriev the newspaper LOOK.
“These actions were sanctioned from above”
As for attempts to break into Crimea saboteurs from the territory of Ukraine, Leonid Kalashnikov took it as an attempt to scare the Ukrainians, who this year for the first time actively went to rest on the Peninsula. “The Ukrainian authorities, of course, was that no matter how much it wants to end the relationship at the level of States, Nations still are drawn to each other. This was evident even during the voting at the Eurovision song contest. All Ukrainians voted for the Russian guy. It had to be cut off. They did it at the cost of destruction of its economy, which was tied to Russia. Received nothing from Europe. Therefore, they don’t want peoples were drawn to each other. At one point the Ukrainians would ask your management why this whole thing? I think this is partly due to the breakthrough attempt of saboteurs. Otherwise I can’t interpret,” – says Leonid Kalashnikov.
“The attempted terrorist attack was not from extremist and terrorist organization “the Right sector* and not from the punitive battalions, and the units of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine. Moreover, the cover of this operation involved heavy armored vehicles of the Ukrainian defense Ministry. It is obvious that these actions were sanctioned from above and was carried out with the Express authorization of the political leadership of Ukraine. This is a very serious sign that Ukraine is not going to fulfill Minsk agreements and moves to a direct hostile attitude towards Russia, not only in the rhetoric but in the format of a real hostile actions”, – said Grigoriev.
