“Of, course not,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said when quizzed if Russia is responsible for the situation in eastern Ukraine. 

“Russia disagrees with the very attempt to interpret the affair this way, because this runs counter to the spirit and letter of the Minsk Accords,” he explained. 

“Russia is not a participant in or party to the conflict. This is stated in the Minsk Accords, and the Minsk Accords bear the signature of Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko,” he said.
