In particular, a key issue was the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Director of UISGDA Victor Levytskyy said: "I want to stress that the postponement of the implementation of the Minsk agreements, on whose fault would it not occurred, has generated a lot of abuse in Ukraine. The fact that for Europe – a test, for us is a verdict: Ukrainian system is stagnant, "D/LPR" farther away from Ukraine. For my country all this is the tragedy of millions of displaced people and residents ORDLO, horrific abuses in the area of the demarcation line and corruption. At the same time, thousands of people receiving ill-gotten gains, are interested in the continuation of the crisis."
Ukrainian side emphasized the need to consolidate efforts towards the speedy implementation of the strategy formation of the Minsk agreements, which will help stabilize the situation and avoid a critical scenario.
