“In recent days Ukraine has been insisting on an alleged steadfast implementation of the Geneva accord of April 17, 2014,” the statement reads. “However, things are going on upside down in Kiev.”
“We once again call on the Ukrainian side to prove by deeds, not by words, its sincere aspiration to seek the national reconciliation in Ukraine,” the ministry said.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia will insist on respect to the Geneva accord on Ukraine and will strongly denounce attempts to distort it.
"We will insist on the fulfillment of the Geneva agreements and prevent attempts to distort them," Lavrov noted, adding that there "should not be any unilateral demands, but attempts were made to present them to us."
“To make claims to us that we have allegedly signed in Geneva something that delegitimises actions of current authorities is a lie,” the minister noted.
