The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the contact group, Leonid Kravchuk, called for the postponement of negotiations on Donbass from Minsk.
According to him, Kiev does not consider Belarus a neutral country, the Ukraine 24 TV channel reports.
Kravchuk added that until a neutral country has been chosen, this issue will be decided by the Ukrainian authorities. “Such countries – neutral and highly authoritative – there are many in Europe and this is not a problem. There is only a problem of consent and desire, ”he said.
Recall that Kravchuk has already allowed the transfer of the site from Belarus to Sweden and put forward a demand to exclude the representative of the DPR Maya Pirogova from the negotiations.
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Aleksey Reznikov said that Kiev would not send members of its delegation to Minsk in a contact group. He noted that another place should be sought to continue the negotiations.
The Kremlin previously noted that during the presidency of Vladimir Zelensky, it was not possible to advance either in the implementation of the Minsk package of measures or in subsequent agreements.
