According to the Finnish diplomat, the goals that are set in the Minsk deal are still achievable.

‘Minsk agreements remain the best way for Ukraine and the entire region to move forward. Despite numerous delays in this regard, the goals that were set by this agreements are still achievable. The Parliamentary Assembly consecutively condemned illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia, pointing out on violations of the Helsinki act and reporting serious humanitarian issues that occur to the ongoing crisis – specifically, detention of Ukrainian citizens’, Ilkka Kanerva said.
