NATO hushing up violations of Minsk accords by Ukrainian authorities

Russian ambassador to NATO emphasized that elections in the self-proclaimed republics will facilitate restoration of viability of these territories

BRUSSELS, October 31. /TASS/. NATO hushes up the facts of violations of the Minsk accords on peace settlement in eastern Ukraine by the Ukrainian authorities, Alexander Grushko, the Russian ambassador to NATO said on Friday.

“Instead of advising their ‘special partners’ in Kiev on scrupulous compliance with the Minsk accords and the opening of a full-scale political dialogue with representatives of the country’s eastern regions, NATO prefers to hush up encroachments on the obligations the Ukrainian authorities undersigned,” he said.

“Along with it, NATO officials feel unrestrained as they conjure up ever more new arguments about the allegedly continuing Russian efforts to destabilize the situation in Ukraine,” Grushko said.

“That’s a sign of the same distorted logic and it testifies to a firmly formed habit of laying fault at others’ doors,” he said.

Grushko underlined the full consistency of the elections, which the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics hold on November 2. These elections will facilitate restoration of viability of these territories.

The ambassador made his comment in connection with a statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who claimed the November 2 elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics violated Ukrainian law, contravened the Minsk accords of September 2014 and undermined efforts to settle the conflict in eastern Ukraine peacefully.
