The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on settling the situation in Donbas, ex-President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk said that certain provisions of the Minsk agreements are interpreted differently, but they must be read equally by all parties to the settlement of the situation in Donbas, Interfax- Ukraine reports.
“We cannot doubt the Minsk agreements, but we can say that a considerable time has passed, and these five years have shown that some provisions of the documents do not work, or work contradictory, or are interpreted in different ways. Therefore, we need to bring them into such a thinking and action system that all parties will accept in order to end the war in Donbas,” Kravchuk stressed.
According to the head of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG, the Minsk Agreements do not require fixing of the so-called ‘special status’ for ORDLO in the Constitution of Ukraine.
“And some, including the Russian side, insist that – they say – it is written that way. And we must prove, we must sit down and read together, and come to a conclusion,” Krachuk said.
