“Now Mr. Kuchma has said that they do not have time to do everything. Basically you can think of any postponement, but it is better to strive to have everything done on time. It is good, of course, now that the shelling stopped by armed forces and the so-called volunteer battalions with Ukraine in Donbass. I think that it is today the most important achievement, “- he said.

“As for the execution of the Minsk Agreement, that no other alternative, in my opinion, no. And the most important thing to do, it is necessary to establish direct contact between the authorities and the authorities of Kiev Donetsk and Lugansk republics in order to implement the Minsk agreement, “- said the president. He recalled that in the agreements specified and the adoption of amendments to the constitution and the law on local elections.

“And the changes in the constitution and the law on local elections should be taken in consultation with the Donbas. Such coordination is not carried out. This is a key issue, “- said the Russian leader.

He emphasized that [Ukraine] should also adopt an amnesty law. “How can you have a dialogue with people who are under criminal investigation? <…> It is necessary to finally put in place already before the Rada the adoption of the law on the special status of these territories. These are key elements of a political settlement, “- the president added.
