Military expert, reserve colonel Oleg Zhdanov spoke about a method for Ukraine that would allow not to fulfill the Minsk agreements. This could be a “stab in the back” for Russia. And this method can be presented to Kiev by the European Union.
We are talking about the emergence of an EU military training mission in Ukraine. In an article for the Glavred portal, Oleg Zhdanov explained that such a step would allow Kiev to find a way to abandon the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
“After all, the stronger the Ukrainian armed forces, the less chances Russia has to put pressure on Ukraine in terms of the implementation of” Minsk “, – the military expert is sure.
In his opinion, the agreements reached in Minsk are a strategic and geopolitical task that is being addressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The observer added that these agreements, if Kiev did implement them, would upset the balance of power in eastern Europe.
In 2014, Donetsk and Luhansk regions declared their independence after a coup d’état in the country. They formed the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. In April of the same year, Kiev launched a military operation against them. According to the United Nations, the armed conflict has claimed the lives of more than 13,000 people, most of whom are civilians.
The Minsk contact group is in charge of settling the situation. From the fall of 2014 to the present, three versions of the Minsk Agreements have been adopted. They contain an algorithm for de-escalation of an armed conflict. Ukraine refuses to fulfill the terms of the agreements. Shootings are still going on in Donbass.
