The Secretary General of the OSCE: Ukraine Doesn’t Show the Will to Implement the Minsk Agreements

Translated by Ollie Richardson


The Ukrainian authorities don’t show the political will to implement the Minsk Agreements and de-escalate the military conflict in Donbass. This 
became known from the recording of the telephone conversation of the prankers Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetsov and Aleksey “Lexus” Stolyarov with the Secretary General of the OSCE Thomas Greminger.

The prankers found out the opinion of European official concerning the problems of Ukraine and Donbass under the guise of the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and the Ukrainian Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.

The Secretary General of the OSCE noted that the negotiation process and the implementation of the Minsk Agreements have reached a deadlock, first of all, due to the lack of political will from Kiev.

“Currently, obviously, there aren’t enough policy guidelines that would allow to start implementing the conditions of the Minsk Agreements. It is possible to say that now the situation has reached a political deadlock. There isn’t enough political will from key interested parties in practice to implement all the political provisions and the provision on ensuring the security of the Minsk Agreements. Now, I am afraid that we aren’t moving towards the implementation of these conditions and actually resolving the conflict. I consider that in Kiev there isn’t enough political will to take specific actions for the implementation of political conditions”, he said.

Besides this, Thomas Greminger expressed the opinion that the Ukrainian Security Service staging the death of Babchenko was counterproductive.

“I think that many of us believe that there were other ways of protecting this journalist that wouldn’t undermine he international processes via information transmitted by the Ukrainian authorities,” assured Thomas Greminger.

Also, the Secretary General of the OSCE advised fake Groisman to release the editor-in-chief “RIA Novosti-Ukraine” Kirill Vyshinsky from custody, noting that it would create positive responses in the international community.
