Foreign Minister Larov: pumping Ukraine with weapons pushes Kiev to a military conflict in Donbass … This was stated by the head of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Sergei Lavrov, quoted by RIA Novosti.
According to the diplomat, deliberately heating up the mood of the Ukrainian side provokes the Kiev authorities to sabotage the Minsk agreements and “feeds the illusion of a military solution to the conflict “.
Earlier, the head of the Foreign Ministry predicted a catastrophe for Ukraine in case of attempts to change the key provisions of the Minsk agreements. Lavrov called the Minsk agreements an uncontested basis for resolving the conflict in Donbass and stressed that the OSCE is obliged to send Ukraine a clear signal that their revision is unacceptable. He drew attention to the fact that the internal Ukrainian crisis will not be resolved until Kiev stops evading its legal obligations.
