Ukraine cannot fully defend its position and must make concessions within the framework of the Minsk agreements. German Ambassador to Ukraine Ernst Reichel stated such a position, Interfax Ukraine reports.

"Ukraine cannot defend its interest in this conflict, which is regulated by the Minsk agreements, and must make certain concessions", he said.

Reichel emphasized that Germany expects constructive and intensive work on the implementation of the Minsk agreements from all parties, including Ukraine, which means a complete ceasefire, the withdrawal of heavy weapons and the implementation of a political arrangement, reached in Minsk.

"We firmly believe that it would be much more profitable for Ukraine to have Minsk agreements and implement them, than to be in a situation where there is no agreement with Russia. I was glad when the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko confirmed this during his speech in the Parliament", he stressed.

Recall that Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said the Russian Federation has not implemented a single item of the Minsk agreement within more than two years after its signing.
