MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. Moscow hopes that the new government of Ukraine will be more active in implementing the Minsk agreements, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday after talks with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
"We have considered cooperation in the Normandy format [bringing together Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine]. The key to implementing the agreements is the establishment of a direct dialogue between Kiev and Donbass, securing a special status of Donbass, introducing the relevant amendments to the Constitution, amnesty and coordination of the electoral modalities," Lavrov said. "We hope that Ukraine’s new government will deal with these issues more actively than the previous one. The more so that there are no insurmountable differences and not expected any between the Ukrainian president and government."
