Ukraine said at the OSCE Minsk Russia selective interpretation of agreements

These requirements violate the agreed sequence and logic of the agreements, said the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the OSCE Permanent Council meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the OSCE Ihor Prokopchuk said that Russia selectively treats the Minsk agreement on the settlement of the occupied part of Donbass, essentially putting forward political demands to stop fighting it managed.
