MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Russian-Ukrainian talks are accompanied by Kiev’s aggressive rhetoric and the Ukrainian delegation’s stance still wiggles from side to side, the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s second department of the CIS countries, Alexey Polishchuk, told TASS in an interview.
"At the ongoing negotiations the Ukrainian delegation’s stance is wiggling from side to side. Just as before, the negotiating process is accompanied by aggressive rhetoric in Kiev and in the West, Western arms supplies and the sending of instructors and mercenaries," he said.
In particular, Polishchuk recalled the regrettable experience of talks on the platforms of the Normandy Quartet and the Contact Group, where Kiev shirked compliance with the Minsk accords by hook and by crook. The co-mediators in the Normandy Quartet - France and Germany - just as the other Western countries pretended they did not see this."
"There are no guarantees the same will not happen again," Polishchuk said.
