Russia is likely to stay on the diplomatic path for the next two weeks at least, until the next meeting of advisers to the Normandy format leaders.
"The good news is that the advisers agreed to meet in Berlin in two weeks, which means that Russia is likely to stay on the diplomatic path for the next two weeks at least," Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba told journalists during his visit to Copenhagen, Ukrinform reports.
Kuleba added that Ukraine was ready to advance in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, noting that they begin with security.
"However, Russia must approach the negotiations with a desire to make progress. Unfortunately, Russia's biggest demand is that Ukraine must interact directly with Russian puppets in Donetsk and Luhansk instead of negotiating with Russia. This will not happen. This is a matter of principle," the minister stressed.
As reported, on January 26, Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak announced that the political advisers to the Normandy format leaders had agreed to hold the next meeting in Berlin in about two weeks.
