A new round of negotiations on settlement in Donbass will take place in Minsk

20
The next meeting of the contact group to resolve the conflict in the Donbass will be held in Minsk, reports RIA News.




The parties should discuss issues of respecting the truce, the exchange of prisoners, the political aspect of resolving the conflict, the restoration of the infrastructure of Donbass.

The meeting of the February 28 contact group will be the first after Kiev adopts the law on the reintegration of Donbass, in which Russia is called the aggressor, the territories not under control of Kiev.

The nearest meeting in Minsk may allow setting some priorities in the further negotiation process, but the fact that the adoption of this law will affect the further development of the dialogue is a fact. But let's wait for the next meeting in Minsk, then it will become much clearer, said DNR plenipotentiary Denis Pushilin.

The representative of Kiev, Leonid Kuchma, stated that he regretted the absence of mention of the Minsk agreements in the law on the reintegration of Donbass.

My personal opinion: it is a pity that this document does not refer to the Minsk agreements. The whole world says that this is the only document today, a basic one, on the basis of which you can conduct at least some negotiations, but the Ukrainians are not,
he said.

Kiev and the self-proclaimed republics continue to accuse each other of violating the cease-fire. So, Pushilin promised to bring up for discussion the fact of shelling by the Ukrainian security forces of an ambulance car with the wounded, during which 3 people were killed.

In turn, the Ukrainian side said that in the two weeks that had passed since the previous meeting of the contact group, the militia had repeatedly fired at their positions. There are wounded and one dead.

One of the central issues at the meeting will be the exchange of prisoners. 18 February, the parties exchanged relevant listings. Earlier, the representative of Kiev in the humanitarian subgroup Irina Gerashchenko said that the recent negotiations on this issue ended in vain due to the “destructive position” of Donetsk and Luhansk, which, according to her, “do not agree to the creation of a mechanism for finding the missing people with their participation and The ICRC. In addition, she noted that the militia still "did not give a clear answer to the Ukrainian proposal for hostage lists."

However, in the DPR and LPR, they stated that "the work of the humanitarian group was actually disrupted by the representative of Ukraine, Irina Gerashchenko." According to representatives of the republics, “Gerashchenko left the meeting an hour after the start, without expressing a desire to discuss issues on the agenda,” among which was the issue of the exchange of prisoners.

The previous exchange of prisoners took place at the end of December 2017. Earlier, negotiators predicted several more stages of this process and planned to hold the next exchange in February-March of 2018.

      No matter how cynical it sounds, but - the budget is "eaten up", it is allocated and it is simply mastered.

    It's time to end this "political surrealism." Each time from empty to empty to loud exclamations that this is the only option. Ukraine initially relied on this “only” one and in its aspirations began to smash like a tank with the self-removal of two guarantors - Germany and France and with the consent of Washington.

    Kuchma said that he regrets the lack of mention of the Minsk agreements in the law on the reintegration of Donbass.

    He also stated that the unnecessary was NEVER a state, and in this he seems to be right.

      There will be no more such concessions; I hope they will bring matters to an end to this ugliness.

    It is interesting how Kuev will sign the new Minsk agreements in general if they a priori contradict the law on reintegration ?! The country of absurdity and redneck!

    Kuchma completely fell into insanity - he poured all the raspberries clean. He admitted that there would be no sense from Minsk. Although it was clear to everyone that there would be no peaceful settlement. Is the APU (not the National Bats, all the same) trample down on the Donbass with a punitive purpose? It’s one thing to slaughter near-deserted front-line villages, and another to densely populated cities. Do you want a personal Stalingrad?

    For 4 years, Minsk has been rushing around with this, and things are still there. If Kiev does not fulfill the agreements, then it is necessary to force them to fulfill, if not by force, then by economic means. They talk about violations of Minsk, and trade themselves increased by 30% with Ukraine, i.e. encourage violation of agreements. It can go on forever! Transnistria has existed for 25 years. Neither peace nor war, but people will live when they live humanly! While Putin steers this mess will last forever! Neither peace nor war!

    So, Pushilin promised to bring up for discussion the fact of shelling of a medical vehicle with wounded by Ukrainian security forces, during which 3 people were killed.
    In turn, the Ukrainian side said that in the two weeks that had passed since the previous meeting of the contact group, the militia had repeatedly fired at their positions. There are wounded and one dead.

    Both sides kill women’s doctors, the wounded and both complain ... There’s a blessing where and to whom.
    it is a modern war.
