MOSCOW, September 15 /TASS/. Germany genuinely believes that the Minsk peace process will help settling the Ukraine crisis, Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the Russian Federation Council (parliament’s upper house) Committee for International Affairs, said on Tuesday.
"Judging from what they say, Germany genuinely believes in the Minsk peace process and in that it can bring about a comprehensive settlement," the lawmaker wrote in his blog on the Federation Council’s official website after meeting Gernot Erler, chairman of the German parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, and the German government’s representative for cooperation with Russia.
According to Koschev, the participants in the meeting agreed there was no other alternative to the Minsk peace process, which, they said was still realistic on condition that Germany, the European Union and Russia exerted necessary efforts.
