MOSCOW, May 1. /TASS/. Kiev’s statements that Russian President Vladimir Putin has allegedly agreed that peacekeepers should take part in resolving the conflict in Donbas are wrong, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"No, this is not true," Peskov said commenting on Kiev’s statements.
"The case is that the Russian side has never contested the idea of peacekeepers but neither the Russian side nor the other side guaranteeing the Minsk agreements can agree to this as the conflicting parties - Kiev and Donbas - should give their consent first," he said.
Peskov noted that The Kremlin believes that it is early to raise other issues, including the proposals on peacekeepers, until the Minsk agreements on Ukraine are implemented in full.
Peskov said that the representatives of Kiev and Donbas have signed the Minsk agreements consisting of certain points, and Russia, France and Germany acted as the guarantors.
"We believe it is absolutely wrong to raise other issues until these certain points are implemented," Peskov stressed, also noting that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) should now perform its mission in the region.
A peace deal struck in Minsk, Belarus, by the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France envisaged a ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and people’s militias starting from February 15, followed by withdrawal of heavy weapons from the contact line and also measures of political settlement.
