In Kiev, expect open "twisting hands" from the West
According to Chesnakov, "Surkov and Nuland discussed the issues of breeding forces in the agreed areas, complicated by the failure of the agreements by the Ukrainian side."
“It was noted with satisfaction that the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission has free access to border areas and conducted inspections one hundred forty-five times during August-September without detecting any violations and, moreover, no foreign troops,” he added.
In Kiev, they already understood that the conclusions reached at this meeting would lead to the “twisting of hands” to the Ukrainian rulers.
“The West will put pressure on us. We will twist arms. In the US, they want to leave a positive legacy. Therefore, Nuland is now flying to Moscow. We will be pressured in the coming weeks, imposing decisions on the road map (for the Donbas) that are openly unacceptable to us. ”, - said an unnamed high-ranking Ukrainian official for LIGA.net.
The disputes, as is known, mainly go around the wording of the plan for resolving the conflict and the order of implementation of its points.
Earlier, in September, Poroshenko refused to make concessions, citing the risk of a new wave of instability in the country.
“No, we are not drained. But we must endure the next two weeks. Perhaps, pressure on Ukraine will begin openly, ”the source added.
