The President of Russia Vladimir Putin supported the proposal to strengthen the Special monitoring mission of the OSCE on the contact line in the Donbas and its armaments.
«We not long ago had a conversation with Petr Poroshenko, he suggested strengthening the OSCE, including the OSCE personnel were at the separation line, and to achieve full ceasefire. I think this is the right proposal, we support that,» said Putin during a «straight line» on Thursday, April 14, reports «Interfax-Ukraine».
According to the President of the Russian Federation, this initiative needs to work with Western partners to the OSCE has made this decision.
However, he urged the West to influence partners in Kiev, because he believes that the President, the Prime Minister and all the opposition forces in Ukraine are allegedly «one way or another connected with Western countries».
«Well, do they influence then. What to say, I’m sorry, every time that Moscow has something to do? All we needed to do, we performed. Yourself ought to do something?» — Putin said.
In his words, make changes in the legislation, according to Minsk agreements, should not Russia, namely Ukraine.
«All the time begin to refer to the fact that on the line of contact from time to time shoot. Who does not want to perform the Minsk agreements, to him it is very good, sorry for my bad manners, excuse. Themselves shot, they said — here you are: shooting. Means that do not need to perform the Minsk agreements?» — Putin said.
He also stressed that alternatives to the implementation of these agreements to resolve the situation does not exist.
We will remind, one year ago, April 30, 2015, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has held a phone conversation in the Normandy format with President of France Francois Hollande, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel, during which the sides discussed the situation in the Donbas and steps aimed at reducing escalation. The press service of the presidential administration of Ukraine informed that «in the context of the discussion of ways of peaceful settlement, President Putin agreed with the possibility of placing a peacekeeping contingent in the Donbass».
However, the next day the Kremlin announced that Russian President misinterpreted. No foreign peacekeepers, in addition to the Russian military servicemen and mercenaries in Ukraine in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions did not become.
Currently Ukraine is negotiating the placement in the Donbass armed police of the OSCE mission. to ensure security during the elections in the territory. «It is a firm position of Ukraine, to implement Minsk agreements in full, you need to provide the necessary security component. This component of security is that we must ensure a solid ceasefire regime, effective monitoring regime for the designated weapons, effective control over the uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian border», — said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko April 2, 2016 during the briefing in the premises of the nuclear security Summit in Washington.
It should be emphasized that a week ago, on 5 April, the militants are temporarily controlling certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, said the introduction of IDLO international police mission will lead to «large-scale fighting, will result in a real war, which will be directly drawn into the country of the West.» According to them, the creation of an international police is not envisaged by the Minsk agreements. Let us add that this same thesis was repeated and the representative of the Russian Federation in the Tripartite Minsk group on the peaceful settlement of the situation in the East of Ukraine , Boris Gryzlov. After a few days, Putin was expelled from the security Council because of Russia’s Gryzlov, explained in the Kremlin, focused on «Ukrainian Affairs».
