MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. The United States needs to give up attempts to pressure Russia and should rather make Kiev implement the Minsk peace agreements, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Friday.
Russia is implementing the Minsk agreements in full and insists that Kiev’s sponsors abandon attempts to "exert pressure on Moscow by improper means," the high-ranking diplomat said, commenting on the latest statement of US State Department Coordinator for Sanctions Policy Daniel Fried.
"If they are indeed interested in implementing the Minsk agreements, it is important that they finally achieve this from their Kiev clients," he stressed.
Speaking at a seminar on sanctions against Russia in the Atlantic Council in Washington on May 23, Daniel Fried said it was illogical to rest all the responsibility on Ukraine for implementing the Minsk agreements. He said the US pressure on Kiev has the goal of speeding up reforms in Ukraine and is not linked to the Minsk implementation.
