Kuchma: the «Minsk format» should connect USA

At the meetings of the Trilateral contact group in Minsk Ukraine in the first place to uphold the peace. This was stated by the second President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, UKRINFORM reported.

«The Ukrainian side is first of all necessary to defend the peace, and then everything else. If Ukraine will make concessions to the Russian side on the elections in the occupied territories, we will only get worse. It is impossible to hold elections, because it is not the Ukrainian government. This is the point that we have no right to overstep in the Minsk format,» he said.

However, Kuchma noted that the Minsk format of negotiations is not effective because the political elite has no unified position about it. However, in the opinion of the second President of Ukraine, «the Minsk format of the talks will be more successful if it will join other States, particularly the United States.»

«If fully connects US — nothing. Will continue playing in peace and friendship. And we have some prospects in this game,» said Kuchma.

We will note, earlier US presidents and Russia Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin during a short meeting at the summit of the Asia-Pacific economic cooperation (APEC) discussed the prospects for resolving the conflict in Ukraine.
