UFA, July 10. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said there are more chances for success rather than failure of the February 12 agreements reached in the Belarusian capital known as Minsk 2, stressing that there is no alternative to peaceful solution to Ukraine crisis.
"We have more chances for success than failure," the Russian leader said at the press conference after the SCO and BRICS summits in the Russian city Ufa.
Putin added that the Ukrainian issue was discussed at the meetings with the participants of the summits, and this problem was reflected in the final documents of the events.
"We all have one opinion. This is that there is no other solution to the Ukrainian problem rather than the possibility of solving it by peaceful means and through the full and unconditional implementation of agreements reached in Minsk," the Russian president stressed.
