MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk republic expects Kiev to start implementing the Minsk peace agreements after Petro Poroshenko’s Monday talks in Berlin with the German and French leaders, DPR negotiator Denis Pushilin has said.
"We hope that the meeting that was held in Berlin will be of crucial importance and Kiev will stop simulating the implementation of the package of measures and will indeed start fulfilling and solving the situation at the negotiating table and will not resort to attempts to resolve the conflict by force," Pushilin told the Rossiya 1 TV channel.
At talks in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, Poroshenko confirmed readiness to pull back heavy weapons under 100mm calibre from the front line in the eastern Donbas region.
A new round of talks of the Contact Group is due to be held in Minsk, Belarus, on Wednesday. All the four working subgroups - on security, political, economic and humanitarian aspects - are also expected to meet.
The latest talks in the Belarusian capital took place on August 3-4. A security group failed to agree on the text of the agreement on withdrawing weapons with the calibre under 100mm. The DPR said this was due to an unconstructive stance of Kiev that had set unacceptable conditions for Donbas.
