BERLIN, April 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Every article of the joint Geneva accord on resolving the Ukraine crisis is obligatory for each of the four parties to it, Germany's special coordinator for Russia policy, German Erler, told national radio station Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg.
Erler said he expected that US Vice President Joe Biden, who arrived in Kiev on Monday, would insist that “total disarmament of illegal militias” was enforced, as required by the agreement between Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the United States.
Full implementation of that accord required more effort from all the countries involved, he said, adding that “We should all protect (it) from devaluation.” The agreement was “the biggest diplomatic success and the most sophisticated joint statement” the four sides had made to date, Erler said.
