MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. Ukraine is raising the topic of deploying peacekeepers in south-eastern Ukraine to divert attention from the implementation of the Minsk agreements, Russian State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS on Monday.
"Peacekeepers is an absolutely different subject invented to divert attention from the clear and honest implementation of liabilities Kiev undertook under the Minsk agreements," he said.
The geographical borders of Donbas districts to fall under the law on Donbas’ special status were clearly defined in the Minsk agreements of February 12, Karasin went on to say.
"We continue to insist on Kiev’s fulfilling the Minsk agreements of February 12," he said. "They clearly define the geographic parameters of the districts in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that are covered to the law on Donbas’ special status."
