“In fact, the Russian Federation, the Russian President dropped this hybrid surrogate proposal for peacekeepers, who are supposed to be on the frontline and protect the OSCE mission, that is absolute nonsense.

It was therefore abandoned this surrogate offer, realizing that the world ever partners of Ukraine, members of the UN security Council won’t accept it.

According to her, with regard to the alleged inconsistency of the idea of introducing a peacekeeping mission to the occupied territory “is another delusion of the Russian foreign Ministry”.

“The Minsk agreement aimed at restoring peace in the Donbas. And the key point of the Minsk agreements – a policy component.
