MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Minsk agreements on Ukraine are very laconic, they do not provide for additional interpretations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"There is no place for free interpretations of the text of the Minsk agreements. This is a rather laconic and short text," Peskov told reporters.
The Kremlin spokesman stressed that Russia was not one of the parties to the Minsk agreements, but a guarantor state, alongside France and Germany.
"It is written very clearly in the agreements themselves who should meet what requirements," Peskov said.
In February 2015, Kiev forces and Donbass independence supporters signed a peace agreement in the Belarusian capital of Minsk. The deal stipulates a full ceasefire, weapons withdrawal from the line of contact in Donbass, as well as constitutional reforms that would give a special status to the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. Despite the agreement brokered by the Normandy Four states (Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine), the ceasefire regime is regularly violated, with both sides accusing each other of multiple breaches, undermining the terms of the accord.
