MOSCOW, September 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Kremlin welcomes signing of a protocol at the meeting of Contact Group on Ukraine and hopes for thorough implementation of agreements by all sides, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told ITAR-TASS.
“The administration of the Russian president hails the signing of a protocol on the implementation of the initiatives advanced by Russian and Ukrainian Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko, at the Minsk meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine,” he said. “Moscow hopes the sides will strictly keep to the provisions of the document and will thoroughly realize agreements reached. It also hopes the negotiating process will be continued to finally settle the crisis in Ukraine,” Peskov noted.
Russia’s Ambassador to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov on Friday praised agreements reached by the Contact Group on Ukraine on Friday in Minsk. Chizhov called them "a big step toward the political settlement of the crisis".
A peace plan for Ukraine agreed in Minsk is complicated, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has a part in controlling its implementation, Russia’s Ambassador to the OSCE Andrei Kelin said Friday. “The text… implies cessation of fire, which means Ukrainian servicemen will stop killing people in Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk regions),” Kelin told ITAR-TASS.
