MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. Russia hopes that all parties to the conflict in eastern Ukraine will fulfil in good faith and within stated deadlines their commitments made at peace talks in Minsk, said Russia's ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
"One of the key conditions for successful settlement — and we are constantly talking about it — is to establish direct dialogue between parties," Russia's OSCE envoy, Andrey Kelin, told a meeting of the OSCE permanent council on Thursday. Kelin was reacting to a deal agreed by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France in the Belarusian capital that aims to end the year-old conflict in eastern Ukraine.
"We need to judge from the facts of life, and if everyone wants to agree to build long-term relationships, we should be ready for direct contacts," said Kein, quoted on Russia's Foreign Ministry website.
