MOSCOW (Sputnik) – He reiterated that it would be "more or less logical" to link the implementation of the Minsk agreements by the Ukrainian government with anti-Russia sanctions.
"Unfortunately neither France, nor Germany, nor Russia can carry out a single point [of the Minsk agreements], it can only be done by Kiev… Therefore, we consider phrases about the link between the sanctions and Moscow’s implementation of the Minsk agreements absolutely illogical," Peskov told reporters.
Peskov added that Ukraine does not show any willingness and readiness to make concrete steps aimed at implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"Of course, the Russian president as well as other members of the Normandy Four are always ready to communicate, hold meetings. At the same time there is no sense in holding meetings only to put a tick on carrying out the meeting. There is a need for significant progress concerning compensation of the lost time and demonstration of readiness to implement the Minsk agreements – especially by Kiev," Peskov said.
