The failure of the Minsk agreements is threatened by war, said françois Hollande, speaking in new York at the UN General Assembly. “The Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel took the initiative to organize a meeting with the presidents of Russia and Ukraine in the coming weeks, to give effect to the Minsk agreement”, – concluded the President of France.
The expert told “MK”, what are the chances to revive the negotiation process at the highest level.
Vladimir Zharikhin, Deputy Director of the Institute of CIS countries:
– Putin too emotionally react after the attacks of Ukrainian saboteurs in the Crimea. After the mediation mission of Nazarbayev, he said, in principle, to meet with Poroshenko is possible, if you will, what to say, and if Ukraine will have a desire to move forward with the Minsk agreements. If you now take the Minsk agreement, it’s easy to see what happened to them. There is written that the amendments to the Constitution and the adoption of the law on Amnesty needs to occur before 1 January 2016.. the Timing of elections in DND and LNR also postponed several times. As in Ukraine, the foreign Ministers of Germany and France proposed a modified model of Minsk-2. But, as soon as the policy went, Poroshenko seems to have agreed on their modified model agreements, said no. And in this situation Putin and President of Ukraine there is no sense to talk. If there is a momentum for real progress, to meet, of course, unpleasant, but necessary.
