MOSCOW, September 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes that the authorities in Kiev will show goodwill for President Vladimir Putin’s plan on the Ukrainian settlement, Federation Council chairperson Valentina Matviyenko said on Thursday.
“All depends on Kiev’s goodwill. We hope that such will be shown. Russia is ready to do its best to ensure peace in the long-suffering south-eastern region of Ukraine,” she said, commenting on Putin’s peace plan on Ukraine.
On September 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested a seven-point plan to settle the crisis in Ukraine after a phone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko.
The plan, posted on the Kremlin’s website, in particular calls for an end of active offensive operations by armed militia groups in south-east Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk areas and withdrawal of Ukrainian army units to a distance that would make it impossible to fire on populated areas using artillery and multiple launch rocket systems.
It also called for full and objective international monitoring of compliance with the ceasefire and monitoring of the situation in the safe zone created by the ceasefire, for an exchange of individuals detained by force on an ‘all for all’ basis without any preconditions and for opening humanitarian corridors and humanitarian aid supplies to affected areas.
Matviyenko described the plan “as balanced because it does not give unilateral advantages to any party”.
“Russia proposes a roadmap towards peace that should be concretised and corrected by the Contact Group. The roadmap opens the way for beginning substantive talks,” she said.
