MOSCOW, March 27. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov sees no chances of progress in enforcing the Minsk Accords as long as Kiev does nothing along these lines.
"The situation is not rich in positive shifts for now," he said, when asked about the outlook for a new Normadny Quartet summit. "At least we know nothing about prospects that might help achieve progress."
"Kiev’s inactivity regarding the implementation of the Minsk Accords does not require any comments," Peskov said. "For now the situation involving the implementation of the Minsk Accords is deplorable. The situation itself is rather unstable and has degraded greatly."
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov discussed the situation in Ukraine with Italy’s visiting Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano earlier on Monday.
"We paid attention to the sharp worsening of the situation in eastern Ukraine following a relapse of attempts by the authorities in Kiev to deal with the problem of Donbass from the position of strength," Lavrov said after the talks. "And, of course, we drew attention to the unacceptable attempts at total blockade, which some expect will force the region into submission."
