Russia can return its military to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) if Kyiv changes the attitude and guarantees the conditions of their work. Grigory Karasin, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia claimed this to Kommersant.
‘There is nothing impossible in our life but it is necessary to change the attitude of Kyiv for this, to make the conditions guaranteed and not dependable from some Ukrainian politician. It should be internationally confirmed code of the attitude towards our officers. I think that theoretically, it is possible’, Karasin claimed.
According to him, the Russian officers from the JCCC were humiliated and derogated from their rights in the common issues and human interaction.
As we reported Russia decided to withdraw its representatives from the Joint Center for Control and Coordination in Donbas(JCCC) on December 19.
This decision was made in connection with the new order of entry to Ukraine and the introduction of a duty to inform of the intention to visit the country in advance in electronic form for Russian citizens scheduled for January 1, 2018.
The Joint Center for Control and Coordination is a group to monitor compliance with the Minsk Protocol, which includes representatives of the Ukrainian and Russian sides, as well as the fighters of the “LNR” and “DNR” militants. The Center started its work on September 26, 2014, in Soledar, Donetsk region.
