Ukrainian authorities are trying to divert attention of the international community from their non-compliance with the Minsk Agreements, Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Alexander Lukashevich told Rossiya 24 TV channel in an interview broadcast on Tuesday.
