"Ukraine's new position remains unchanged. It was proclaimed during the Normandy Four summit by President Zelensky <...> that at least as regards [the issue of regaining border control], the Minsk agreements are subject to revision," Reznikov told the Novoye Vremya news outlet.

According to the official, paragraphs of the Minsk agreements must be implemented in the following order:

- Disarmament of illegal armed groups in Donbas;

- Establishment of complete ceasefire;

- Withdrawal of all illegal armed groups from the territory of Ukraine;

- Re-establishment of Ukrainian control over the eastern border;

- Holding elections.

"It is impossible to hold elections if the Ukrainian border with Russia is beyond control of the Ukrainian military. This is evidenced by international experience. <...> The Ukrainian delegation will insist that the Minsk agreements be subject to revision and updating at least in this regard," he said.
