Plenipotentiary representative of Russia in the TCG for Donbass B. Gryzlov noted that the political reputation of Ukraine in the negotiations on Donbass is home to zero.
“Now the political reputation of Ukraine in the negotiations is home to zero. This affects the work in the TCG and in other negotiation formats, ”RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.
Gryzlov noted that recently the leaders of Russia, Germany and France discussed the issue of resolving the conflict in Donbass and came to their senses for some general positions.
“The participants in the discussion came to their senses to the common understanding that for a peaceful settlement of the conflict, Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk must first agree on the situation of peaceful coexistence of Donbass and Ukraine after the settlement, which will make it possible to smartly agree on the cessation of mutual unfriendly acts …” – he reported.
The plenipotentiary added that, contrary to the Minsk agreements, the dialogue on the future status of Donbass has not been started since March 9, 2015.
