In Europe, there are parliamentarians who are trying to push the interests of Russia.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin stated that the satisfaction of Russia’s demands concerning the lifting of sanctions in the Council of Europe will destroy the Minsk agreement.
He said this to journalists in Brussels after a meeting of foreign Ministers of member States of the EU and the countries participating in the Eastern partnership chaired by the High representative of the Union for foreign Affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini.
The Minister said that yesterday, may 12, on the European side, there was a question in relation to the Council of Europe and of Russia’s further participation in this organization.
In this regard, Klimkin noted that the satisfaction of requirements of Russia on the resumption of its rights in the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe without meeting the prerequisites for the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine will lead to the destruction of the Minsk agreements.
“I told them honestly if you move to where you wanted to go a few countries (to satisfy the requirements of Russia on the resumption of its rights in PACE without meeting the prerequisites – the UNIAN), I’m actually on the same day will come out and say that, first of all- we have no Minsk, and secondly it killed him … not only from Moscow, but you consistently kill,” said the Minister.
While asked what is the relationship between the Minsk agreements and the Council of Europe. According to Klimkin, the EU understand that after Russia began almost to issue passports, if “is any step, which will be considered as a step towards Russia in the Council of Europe … then do all the logic of what we were doing, totally destroyed”.
However, he said that in Europe, there are parliamentarians who are trying to push the interests of Russia. Klimkin added that his position has been heard and noted, in particular, German, French and Dutch colleagues.
