BRUSSELS, February 13./TASS/. Russian EU Ambassador Vladimir Chizhov has expressed surprise that European Union leaders keep warning Russia, and not the sides in the conflict in eastern Ukraine, about responsibility for implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"If the European Union intends to be further involved in assistance to the process of political settlement in Ukraine as ‘a private mediator’, why then making threatening statements towards the Russian Federation and tapping on the shoulder Mister Poroshenko, ‘dear Petro’ as [European Council President Donald] Tusk called him at the summit," the Russian envoy said.
"If giving a warning, it would be logical to warn the parties to the conflict about responsibility," he said. "Those who are involved in it - Kiev and the self-proclaimed republics in the east of Ukraine, and not Russia which along with Germany and France took part in titanic efforts towards putting the crisis on a political track," he said.
