Putin Gives Luxembourg Premier "Principled Assessment" of Ukraine's Actions
The two sides discussed in detail the prospects for resolving the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine, as well as the migration situation on the borders of Belarus with the EU member states.
Earlier, Russian ambassador to the USA Anatoliy Antonov urged Washington to remind Kiev that revision of the Minsk agreements was unacceptable. He added that Moscow considered the continued militarization of Ukraine and the fact that Western troops were present on its territory unacceptable. He also said that Ukraine's accession to NATO was unacceptable.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also pointed to the need to "force" Kiev to implement the Minsk agreements. In his turn, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that it was Moscow that wanted the agreements to fail.
