Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that if the letter of the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Russian President Dmitry Kozak was published in the Ukrainian media, this is not the most correct way to conduct negotiations, RIA Novosti reported.
Earlier, the media reported that Kozak sent a letter to the adviser to German Chancellor Angela Merkel with copies for representatives of France and Ukraine. In the letter, he allegedly called the negotiations on Donbass at the level of political advisers senseless.
Peskov said that he did not know what the Ukrainian media published. According to him, if Kozak’s letter was really published, then this is not the most correct way of doing business in a situation of difficult negotiations to resolve the conflict in southeastern Ukraine.
Earlier, Kozak called the consequences of Kiev’s revision of the Minsk agreements. The deputy head of the Kremlin administration believes that if the Ukrainian authorities confirm the statement about the revision of the Minsk agreements, this will mean Kiev’s withdrawal from all agreements on the settlement of the conflict in Donbass. Earlier, Sergei Lavrov said that Kiev categorically does not want to confirm the Minsk agreements on resolving the situation in Donbass.
