Zakharchenko sez Statement by Biden that DNR Elections Threaten the Peace Process is Derisory

______________________________

DNR Chairman of the government A V Zakharchenko disparaged statements by US Vice President Joseph Biden and junta strongman P A Poroshenko alleging that 18 October elections in the DNR threaten the Minsk process, noting, “The statement by Poroshenko and Biden that the DNR local elections scheduled for 18 October threatened the Minsk process is derisory. Most likely, [Biden] just doesn’t understand [the process] at all. I doubt that he even read the whole set of complex provisions of the Minsk accords. As usual, the Ukrainian government, speaking via Poroshenko, deliberately distorted the facts. If Biden really cared about the Minsk Agreement, he’d force Poroshenko and Groisman (Speaker of the Verkhovnaya Rada, the head of the Constitutional Committee) carry it out. After all, they agreed to confer with the DNR on amendments to the [Ukrainian] Constitution and on local elections. They have to carry out Points 4,11, and 12 of the accords. The Minsk process will end in devastating the Ukraine, if it evades dialogue with the Peoples Republics on resolving the regional conflict. If Biden won’t compel Poroshenko to dialogue, then, it’s clear that [Biden] supports [Poroshenko]. Therefore, the USA would shoulder the responsibility for failure of negotiations, which would lead to the inevitable collapse of the Ukrainian state”
