The former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko for a long time lied that Kiev fulfill the Minsk agreements aimed at resolving the conflict in the Donbass. This TV channel NewsOne, said the former Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Hope Savchenko.
According to her, the current head of state Vladimir Zelensky, unlike his predecessor, is trying to comply with the provisions of this document. “Poroshenko earlier lied that we carry them, and really didn’t do anything. Zelensky actually looking for mechanisms to fulfill them”, — said Savchenko.
Also, the ex-MP noted that Ukraine needs “in all possible formats” to maintain a dialogue with the Russian leadership to achieve peace in the East of the country. According to Savchenko, to fulfill the Minsk agreements in full is not easy, because each of the paragraphs of the document requires the parties to perform “certain actions”.
October 10, Savchenko said that Poroshenko “lost” the country in 2015 after signing of the Minsk agreement and the approval of the “formula Steinmeier”. The former MP drew attention to the inconsistency of the relationship of the former President to the protests that erupted in Kiev after his decision four years ago and the signing of the peace agreements Donbass President Vladimir Zelensky at the moment.
Part of Donbass is de facto out of control of Ukraine as a result of armed conflict. In April 2014, the Ukrainian government began a military operation against the Donetsk and Lugansk national republics, which declared independence from Kiev after the change of the Central government. Kiev has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the fighting, but Russia rejects all accusations.
