"A new person also means new possibilities. That is why it would be logical to expect new approaches from him [Zelensky], in particular to the conflict settlement in Donbass," the diplomat said. "Everything must proceed in accordance with the Minsk agreements and a dialogue with his own people, instead of attempts to blame Russia for everything," he added.
