MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. Heads of the Russian and Ukrainian delegations have held a meeting behind closed doors within the framework of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna, chairman of the State Duma’s foreign affairs committee Alexey Pushkov told TASS on Friday.

"Closed-door negotiations have taken place between the heads of the Russian and Ukrainian delegations, brokered by OSCE PA President Ilkka Kanerva," Pushkov said without elaborating into details of the talks but calling them a certain ‘shift’.

Along with this, the Ukrainian delegation "is still busy with name-calling Russia and blaming it for all sins possible," the lawmaker said adding that representatives of the Verkhovna Rada [Ukraine’s parliament] had even mentioned militiamen’s activities extremely rarely.

"Actually, they are trying to pin all the blame for what Kiev regards as disruptions of the Minsk agreements on Russia," Pushkov said citing Ukrainian lawmakers’ speeches.

"They continue talk aggression, invasion and intervention," he said. "Unfortunately, the Ukrainian side has staked, as before, on stoking the Cold War tensions and there arises an impression that [Ukraine’s President Petro] Poroshenko did not put his signature under the agreements in Minsk."
