Four years to the Minsk agreements: whether it is worth counting on the new agreement


Exactly four years ago in Minsk on the night of February 12 Angela Merkel, the then president of France François Hollande, Petro Poroshenko and Vladimir Putin signed the Minsk agreements, reminds Today. we Will notice

that "arrangements", but not "agreements" as national parliaments did not ratify them. And though for these four years any clause of the Minsk agreements was not implemented, the parties continue to hold them, calling uncontested. Even the new peace plan of authorship of the chairman of OSCE in Ukraine and the Tripartite Contact Group (TCG) Martin Saydik, despite all discrepancy, could not push the parties to search of new instruments of peaceful settlement. And business here not so much in Russia as all perfectly understand that Putin just like that will not return Donbass and the Crimea how many in Germany and France which the other day "consecrated" completion of "Nord Stream-2".
