Kuchma regrets that Donbas law has no reference to Minsk accords
The second president of Ukraine, representative of the country in the Trilateral Contact Group for the settlement of the situation in Donbas, Leonid Kuchma, regrets that the law on ensuring state sovereignty in the temporarily occupied territory of Donbas does not refer to the Minsk agreements.
"It's a pity that there is no reference to the Minsk accords in this document. The whole world says today that this is the only document under negotiation, while Ukraine doesn't agree," he said, speaking at the Fourth Baltic-Black Sea Forum "Solidary Safety of Baltic-Black Sea Region Countries as a Consensus Strategy for Big Europe" in Kyiv on Friday, commenting on the signing of the law by the president.
At the same time, according to him, the document clearly spelled out the wording of Russian aggression against Ukraine, which is a positive development.
