Russia is interested in resolving the conflict in the East of Ukraine and does not intend to delay it, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking at the international seminar "The Potsdam meetings" organized by the Russian Council on Foreign Affairs, reports "RIA Novosti".

"Russia is interested in resolving the conflict on its borders, more than anyone else, despite the fact that periodically you hear the assertion that we want to artificially delay this conflict, keeping it frostbitten forever," - said Lavrov.

The Russian foreign minister also stressed that the implementation of the Minsk agreements does not lose its relevance.

"We all agree that full implementation of the Minsk agreements remains on the agenda, under which Kyiv took over a very concrete commitment to provide Donbas with special status, to adopt a law on amnesty, to hold local elections", - he added.

Earlier, a spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that Russia is interested in a united Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
