DONETSK, September 15. /TASS/. Kiev representatives to the Contact Group on Donbass keep their position on the political settlement in secret, and no progress could be achieved during the talks, Donetsk People’s Republic representative to the Minsk talks Natalya Nikonorova said Wednesday.
"Kiev’s position on political issues is still being held in secret from us, there is still no real progress, and all loud statements made by Ukrainian representatives are attempts to put up a good front," she said in the DPR Foreign Ministry Telegram channel.
Nikonorova disclosed that the Ukrainian delegation "suddenly proposed to fix that Ukraine fulfilled all its political obligations under the 2019 Paris summit and to remove these points from the political group’s agenda."
Such demarche is cynical, the envoy said, because it is Kiev’s position that blocks any progress on agreements, achieved by the Normandy Four format (Germany, Russia, Ukraine, France), including the political settlement.
"Ukraine has not fulfilled a single thing, outlined in the commands of the Normandy Four leaders," at the December 2019 meeting.
