MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. The Kremlin hopes that Washington will send Kiev a clear signal about the need to implement the Minsk Accords during the meeting between Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and US President Donald Trump, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"We hope that these high-level contacts will be used by our American counterparts to send a strong signal to Kiev about the need to implement the Minsk Accords," Peskov said.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that the scheduled meeting between Trump and Poroshenko "concerns bilateral US-Ukrainian relations, as it is the sovereign affair of both countries’."
Peskov added that he does not find it necessary to start a "race" on informing the US about the current situation in Ukraine. "Washington is well-aware of the genuine state of the Ukrainian peace process, and Washington, if it wishes so, it can easily study all the details and obligations imposed on Kiev under the Minsk agreements, as well as other things," he said. "So, any sort of ‘race’ is hardly possible here." Peskov also answered a question on the Kremlin’s attitude towards Poroshenko’s remark that he is meeting with Trump before the US president is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in order to furnish Washington with information on the current situation in Ukraine.
