MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. No weapons will help Ukraine secure its integrity, full implementation of the Minsk agreements with due account of the interests of people living in Donbas is needed, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday addressing the 70th jubilee session of the United Nations General Assembly.

"We are confident that only through full and faithful implementation of the Minsk agreements of February 12, 2015 can we put an end to the bloodshed and find a way out of the deadlock. Ukraine’s territorial integrity cannot be ensured by threats and force of arms," Putin said.

"What is needed is a genuine consideration for the interests and rights of the people in the Donbas region, and respect for their choice. There is a need to coordinate with them, as provided by the Minsk agreements, the key elements of the country’s political life," Putin stressed. "These steps will guarantee that Ukraine will develop as a civilized state, as an essential link in building a common space of security and economic cooperation both in Europe and in Eurasia."

Touching on the Ukrainian development, the Russian leader noted that people’s discontent with the authorities in that country had been used to spark off the crisis. "A military coup was orchestrated from outside that triggered a civil war as a result," he said.
