Earlier we reported Russia intended to cooperate with any new Ukraine’s authority to solve the conflict in Donbas peacefully, as the Russian President Putin said, TASS reported.

“Nevertheless, we think that there is no other way, and we will have to agree on something. I hope, that people who will head the state in the future, whoever it is… will come to the conclusion that there is no other way, except the peaceful one, and it is important to implement Minsk Agreements,” he said.

At the same time, Putin did not predict whether the situation in Ukraine would change after the elections. He spoke against the meetings in Normandy format during the pre-election campaign in Ukraine calling them pointless. Besides, the President of Russia accused Ukraine of “non-fulfillment of Minsk Agreements,” which became a tradition.

Earlier, Heiko Maas, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany, stated that all the efforts of the participants of the Normandy format are taken to develop UN peacekeeping mission project in Donbas.
