MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Chances of another meeting of the Normandy Quartet foreign ministers being held by the end of the year depend on the progress in drawing up a road map to implement the Minsk accords, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told reporters on Wednesday.

"The world community is concerned that the Ukrainian authorities have been playing games and ducking the issues, while avoiding their obligations assumed in February 2015," the Russian diplomat said. "Many of our counterparts have begun to realize that this game is dangerous, dodging a solution to the Donbass crisis."

Karasin pointed out that at the moment Russia’s chief goal was to call on Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko to start implementing the Minsk agreements. "All the conditions for that have been created, a road map on the implementation of the accords is being hammered out," he noted. "There is no alternative to the agreements."

"Chances of another meeting by the Normandy Quartet’s foreign ministers being held by the end of the year depend on the progress in solving security issues, particularly, in the disengagement of the armed forces, as well as in drawing up a road map," Karasin emphasized. "A meeting for the sake of a meeting seems unreasonable, we would like every meeting to make some sense.".
