We can not achieve peace only because Russian President Vladimir Putin does not want to fulfill the Minsk agreement. This was stated by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during the press conference broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.
"Do you really think that four dead people in Donbas - it's because of the Minsk agreements? Or because of Putin? Answer to yourself: Yesterday's 120 shelling - is it because of the Minsk agreements? Or because of Putin?
Today we are using all our instruments. But there are also Minsk agreements which are included in the decision of the UN Security Council, sanctions against Putin are applied because of the non-implementation of the Minsk agreements, and we can not achieve peace, which I want most, just because Putin doesn't fulfill the Minsk agreements.
But the Minsk agreements show to the world who is to blame for this, to appeal to court, bring the perpetrators to justice, force Russia to pay the price in the framework of international law, for the fact that it was their offenses. "- Poroshenko said.
Earlier president stated about his two "absolutely brilliant" telephone conversations with Trump.
"As to our contacts with the United States, I can say that I had a few telephone conversations, absolutely brilliant, with President Trump, I had a very good meeting and telephone conversations with the Vice President Pence and the Minister on my behalf conducted a thorough discussion with him during his visit to Washington. I had a very detailed conversation with Secretary of State Tillerson. On my instructions, the minister held quite effective negotiations with McMaster, adviser on national security issues. We have enough effective cooperate with Congress, "- Poroshenko said.
