The French government blames Kiev for failing to implement the Minsk agreement.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Kiev must start making concrete steps toward the implementation of the Minsk deal.
“The government in Kiev must implement reforms and introduce particular amendments in its constitution on the special status of Donbass and the electoral process in the region. We hope that the results will be achieved by the end of this year,” Le Figaro cites Jean-Marc Ayrault.
In other words, the French official openly admitted that Kiev is sabotaging the peace in Donbass.
Le Figaro believes that this is the first time when the French government has taken the side of Moscow in the ongoing crisis.
Ayrault also criticized the actions of Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman. He proposed to create the Ministry of the Occupied Territories (Kiev uses this way to call the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic).
The French Foreign Minister emphasized that this step will delay the implementation of the Minsk agreement.
