Pushilin Demands that Minsk Guarantors Force the Ukraine to Carry Out the Minsk Accords

The DNR Official Representative of the Contact Group, D V Pushilin, the Vice-Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet, said that the statement by the Ukrainian Presidential Administration on the possible introduction of UN peacekeepers in Novorossiya indicated an unwillingness to carry out the Minsk Agreement, noting, “Unfortunately, the Ukraine ceased to be a guarantor of the Minsk-2 pact by its active attempts to push at the UN their idea of ​​deploying foreign peacekeepers in the Donbass. Poroshenko couldn’t have been unaware that paragraph 10 of the Set-Up provides for the withdrawal of any and all foreign armed groups from the Donbass. Of all the international organisations, the package only mentioned the OSCE’s role, which has the task of monitoring [the pact’s execution], so, by his initiative, Poroshenko actually discredits the Observer Mission. Once again, this proves that the Ukraine tries to derail the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Kiev consistently alleges that the OSCE is unable to carry out the prescribed in these agreements”.

Therefore, once again, the DNR calls on the leaders of Germany and France, which together with Russian President V V Putin, were the guarantors of the package of measures, to prevent any further provocative moves on the part of Kiev. Pushilin observed, “Bundeskanzlerin Merkel and Président Hollande declared that they’d guarantee that the Ukraine would carry out Minsk-2. Therefore, they now have to bring Poroshenko to heel, as by his actions, he ripped up the Minsk agreements”. Pushilin said that the initiative to deploy peacekeepers in Novorossiya, which Poroshenko allegedly discussed with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, is unlikely to see implementation, as Kiev can’t rely on an international consensus that such a move is necessary. He concluded, “I think that there are UN member-countries that won’t agree with Poroshenko’s initiative”.

In the early morning hours of 21 April, Poroshenko’s media flacks said that he held talks with the UN Secretary General. The parties allegedly “agreed to implement further steps for the possible deployment of peacekeeping contingent under the auspices of the UN in the Donbas”. There is no UN statement on the subject.

Let’s keep it short. Any deployment of peacekeepers would have to pass the Security Council. Both Russia and China are permanent members and have vetoes… do you need to be Einstein to see how this Mexican soap opera is going to turn out? Poroshenko is in a crisis and he’s grasping at anything. The only thing that people are betting on is when the misbegotten Ukraine goes under. No one believes that it can stand. Not even those writing pro-Ukrainian articles in the Western media believe that it can stand (except for a few deluded Galician Uniate nationalists). The so-called “Ukraine” ain’t dead yet… but it soon shall be… and the world will be better off without it. Good riddance to bad rubbish…
