Minsk agreement can be rewritten as and look for other venues and formats of negotiations with Russia. But it should be done only after Ukraine will definitely be an alternative. About it in conversation with “Segodnya” said the Deputy Minister on the issues of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons George Tooke, commenting on the approaching anniversary of the signing of the second Minsk agreement.
“During these two years the Minsk agreements are not implemented. Because the first point is security. Without the first paragraph to talk about the second, third, twenty-fifth is illogical. At the same time, I don’t think that the Minsk agreement can not be rewritten. From my point of view they are, unfortunately (or was it done deliberately, or accidentally, I don’t know), are written in such a way that it does not have a single interpretation. And this is a huge problem, because each of the parties interpret them differently. So I, for one, fully admit that they can be rewritten. It may be worth, this is also a lot of talk, to build other sites. But only after having built some kind of alternative, it is possible to abandon the existing still the only forum for negotiations. Before you destroy, you first need to build something,” says Tuk.
To the question “Segodnia” whether it will be possible in the near future full-scale Russian offensive, Georgy Tuka replied, “I don’t believe it, because without the use of aviation and missile weapons any attack would lead to huge losses. Without a doubt Russia is not ready. At the same time, we must not forget that these idiots a couple of days ago I think (a Russian propagandist Dmitry Kiselev, who runs his program on one of the Russian channels — Ed.) discussed the possibility of what Ukrainian city they will “release” the experience “liberation” of Aleppo. This is purely a brotherly nation”.
We will remind, in the night of February 12, 2015 in the Belarusian capital following 16-hour marathon of negotiations “channel four” was signed “Minsk-2”.
