The United States Explained the Refusal to Meet on the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements
OREANDA-NEWS. The US Permanent Mission gave explanations about the boycott of an informal meeting at the UN on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. According to American diplomats, the informal meeting in the UN Security Council initiated by the formula of the Venezuelan diplomat Diego Arria, who organized such meetings for the first time in 1992, distorts the view of the conflict in southeastern Ukraine. And this despite the fact that on the eve of the meeting, Kiev presented its fake version of World War II to the UN.
For the first time, representatives of the unrecognized republics of the DPR and LPR were invited to the meeting. The speeches of the representatives of Lugansk and Donetsk, according to the diplomats of the USA, Great Britain and Estonia, serve exclusively Russian purposes. Earlier, representatives of Ukraine, Germany and France tried to block the meeting. These are three of the four countries that are participating in the Minsk Group on Conflict Resolution. At the same time, Kiev, Paris and Berlin have once again demonstrated their unwillingness not only to listen to the people who live on the territory of the LPR and DPR, but also to listen to them at all. In addition, Kiev was unpleasant to once again receive evidence that it was he who was the party that violated the ceasefire regime.
After the boycott of the meeting, Dmitry Polyansky, First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, stated that France and Germany demonstrated their inconsistency at the UN as negotiators to resolve the situation in Ukraine.
As Polyansky wrote on the Telegram channel of the Russian mission to the United Nations, France and Germany do not care about the Minsk process, or the Donetsk people, or the Russian-speaking residents of Ukraine in general. He believes that they cannot in this case be called intermediaries, and adds that there is nothing to expect from them.
