In case of refusal of the Minsk agreements, Ukraine will have to resolve the conflict by military means or to start an open attack on Russia, Petro Poroshenko. He urged opponents of the Minsk process to responsibility
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that in case of refusal of the Minsk agreement leaves only two options: a military solution to the conflict and open attack on Russia. He stated this in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels, reports UNIAN.
“He who proposes to abolish Minsk, have to offer an alternative. Alternative two: a military solution to the conflict and open attack on the Russian Federation. I ask you to compare military budgets and capabilities, was asked to assume responsibility for future victims,” — said the President of Ukraine.
In addition, Poroshenko said that there are no secret agreements with foreign partners regarding the Donbass does not exist. “The first myth — there are supposedly around the “Minsk” any private arrangement, unknown to the General public or our partners. I want categorically to deny it. This is unusual style for European policy. It is in Moscow to negotiate, to sign a secret agreement and then over the years they do not make public”, — assured Poroshenko.
“If Ukraine itself will be released from the Minsk agreements, forget about sanctions. If Ukraine itself will assume the status of a violator of Minsk agreements, forget the coalition,” the President added.
He also said that during the meeting in Berlin in “channel format” he didn’t yell at the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. Poroshenko explained that he had asked Putin to stop shooting, but said that one never raises his voice.
Poroshenko expects that the process of agreeing a “road map” for the implementation of the Minsk agreements will be completed before the end of November. “We agreed that we soon meet diplomatic advisers, the leadership of the member countries “Norman Quartet”, and later in November will be a meeting of foreign Ministers “channel four”, which will prepare the next summit, which will be approved “road map” — said the President of Ukraine. A road map, he said, would provide for the implementation of all the Minsk agreements in September 2014 (the”Minsk-1″) and February 2015 (the”Minsk-2″).
Speaking about the introduction of visa-free regime, Poroshenko promised that this decision will be made in November 2016. “Visa-free regime will be introduced by November 24, when there will be the summit Ukraine — EU. We agreed that by this time all documents will be ready,” he promised and added that Kiev has fulfilled all the requirements of the European side for the introduction of such a regime and the majority of MEPs support the abolition of visas for the Ukrainian state.
