UNITED NATIONS, September 23 /TASS/. The last meeting of the Contact Group for the Ukraine settlement gives ground for cautious optimism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in his speech at the general debate of the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly on Friday.
"Ukraine, which is so close to us, has become a victim of those who like games with a zero result. Its development was undermined by an anti-constitutional coup and is now being destroyed by Kiev’s refusal to implement the Minsk agreements effective as of February 12, 2015," the Russian foreign minister said adding that the last meeting of the Contact Group for the Ukraine settlement was inspiring some cautions optimism.
