NOVO-OGARYOVO, June 16 /TASS/. The presidents of Russia and Finland, Vladimir Putin and Sauli Niinisto, called for strict implementation of the Minsk agreements for Ukraine at their talks on Tuesday.

"We paid special attention to Ukraine when we discussed international problems. We deem it necessary to strictly implement all the agreements reached in Minsk on February 12," Putin said after talks with his Finnish counterpart.

Putin said he was confident there are no alternatives to the Minsk agreements on the Ukrainian settlement, which must be implemented despite all difficulties.

"I think there is no alternative [to the Minsk format] and it is necessary to follow this path however difficult it might be," Putin said at a news conference after talks with his visiting Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto.

Putin underscored that each and every provision of the Minsk-2 package envisaged that Kiev must agree their implementation with representatives of Donbas. "It is necessary to sit down at the negotiating table directly with representatives of these territories and try to reach agreement. There is no other way out," he said.
