Here actually, at the moment, the most important thing is to consolidate, to strengthen the ceasefire regime. On this basis, to create conditions for reconciliation and the subsequent political process. Now, if the situation will develop according to this scenario, we can assume that we achieve your goals. But without a ceasefire, about any effective political process, as we all know, there can’t be”, – Putin said at a press conference.
