Dmitry Peskov also voiced unequivocal Moscow’s occupation of Crimea
The only way to end the war in the Donbas is Minsk implementation agreements, the Budapest Memorandum will not help to resolve the situation in the East of Ukraine. About it said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.
The question is, will the Kremlin agree to revisit the issue of restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity under the Budapest Memorandum, the speaker of the Kremlin explained that the settlement of the situation in the Donbass depends on another document.
“Settlement in the South-East of Ukraine can be fulfilled only as a result of implementation of the Minsk agreements. All countries agree on the inevitability of this document and focus on what this document needs to be fulfilled,” – said Peskov.
He also added that the question of de-occupation of Crimea to Russia is closed.
Speaking about the implementation of “Minsk” Sands would have to think about the fulfillment of Russia’s obligations. So, earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko reminded Putin about the obligations in the Donbass. He said that Russia still has to fulfill a number of conditions under the Minsk agreements to move forward in resolving the conflict and go to elections in the occupied territories.
Note that the guarantor countries under the Budapest Memorandum did not protect Ukraine from Russian aggression, and Russia itself has grossly violated the agreement. However, the former head of the SBU and Ministry of defense, former NSDC Secretary Yevhen Marchuk clearly explained why the US did not protect Ukraine from Russia. According to him, according to the document, neither the us nor other countries-guarantors cannot be claims.
