"These agreements [the Minsk protocol] are framework to a large extent. These agreements will be specified, and this work is already beginning. The sequence that is mentioned in the protocol will be spelled out," he added.
"Therefore, talking of the importance of the format, linked with the implementation of the agreements, reached in Minsk on September 5, it is inadmissible to forget about the inter-Ukrainian constitutional process, the obligation to launch which had been assumed by Kiev authorities several months ago," the minister said.
"We will seek the fulfilment of these obligations," he added.
