The reports in some U.S. media that the Kremlin is preparing an agreement with the new administration of the USA to Ukraine are untrue, said press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov. His words on Thursday, February 9, reports the correspondent of”.ru”.
“It is unlikely that the internal conflict may be the subject of some deal. This information does not correspond to reality,” Peskov said.
A Kremlin spokesman also stressed that “the subject of the transaction can not be the fate of people who live in the Donbass, and who are now de facto rejected by his own state.”
At the same time, according to Peskov, Moscow hopes that Washington “is somehow use its influence to convince the same Kiev to fulfil its obligations in terms of implementing the Minsk agreements and refrain from aggressive tactics in addressing this problem, which we observed last days.”
February 7, Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the desire of the President of the United States Donald trump to grasp the essence of problems in Ukraine is a quality shift in comparison with the position of the Obama administration. He noted that Washington is aware that the return of the territories of Donbass under the control of Kiev will not solve all problems.
Published on 6 February interview with Fox News, trump said that Washington does not know what is happening in Ukraine, and in the real world has yet to understand.
Another aggravation of the situation in the Donetsk region began after the APU attempts to go on the offensive in late January. The fighting that ensued under the plant, were the most violent since August 2015, when Kiev security forces conducted massive attacks on the territory of the self-proclaimed DND.
