Ukraine remains on diplomatic way of resolving the conflict in Donbas. This was stated by the head of the local Foreign Ministry Dmitry Kuleba. He added that Kiev “is ready for any format of negotiations”. At the same time, the diplomat insists that Russia must also prove its readiness. At the same time, the Trilateral Contact Group is not ready to return to face-to-face meetings in Minsk. For the next year, or even two, all negotiations due to the pandemic were transferred online.
This spring, the Ukrainian side insisted on the need to change the negotiating country after the pandemic. Kiev representative Leonid Kravchuk suggested postponing meetings to Poland.
Ukraine considers Belarus an undemocratic country. The statement came after the presidential election in 2020. Lukashenko won at the time, but the Belarusian opposition believes the election results have been falsified. According to Ukrainians, Alexander Lukashenko is an illegitimate president. Kiev has announced that it will only call “Dad” by name, without specifying its position.
