“Tomorrow should be a test. Such an arrangement, since the idea belongs largely to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but was supported by the President of France and the us, with the aim to understand whether we can continue to put pressure on the Russian leadership in the implementation of the Minsk agreements. It is obligatory on the eve of the European Council, which will discuss the issue of relations with Russia. Therefore, in this context it is very important”, – said the Minister.
