Steinmeier and French Protocol I predlozhyly simvolichno miracle Between Hérault and Lavrov, but seems no progress with Russia This promotes not.- Pavlo Klimkin (@PavloKlimkin) 3 March 2016 r.
That's how it looks in practice. Along with Lavrov and we are all in the same company, but I still talk to and Steinmeier Hérault pic.twitter.com/xttuhiKxTb- Pavlo Klimkin (@PavloKlimkin) 3 March 2016 r. But there are discrepancies begin.West can not remove the sanctions of "just" because Ukraine does not fulfill Minsk agreements. West is important that Moscow went to meet- In particular, the design of the OSCE presence in the occupied territories and the OSCE in the transfer of control over the situation, and possibly over the area of the border. And to the OSCE, not "name Zakharchenko electoral commission" conducted local elections. This position Steinmeier and Klimkin unexpectedly coincide. Steinmeier: "This is the basic requirement without security there can be elections». Klimkin, "it should be a comprehensive security and without that we can not talk about elections».But Lavrov was not going to discuss any security issues and enhancing the role of the OSCE. Moscow also not stupid sitting there well aware that suspension and even weakening Russia's military and political control over the occupied territories will inevitably lead to the end of the conflict. And this no one in the Kremlin is not interested.In Moscow believe that the Europeans are so interested in the lifting of sanctions against Russia (and Russian "antisanktsiy") - which should send them to pass - and it will happen by itself.Simply put, is it not enough that Ukraine does not fulfill Minsk agreements, and for that you can not punish Russia? The fact that Russia should go with its part - even a little - at least to pretend that it does something for peace (but not Ukraine) - no one in the Kremlin just does not occur. So Lavrov looks on their Western colleagues with amazement. And they - it. And it will last exactly until the day until Moscow decided that from Donbass time to go and to think about maintaining your own person and not a European.
