Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin says that there are other scenarios to settle the situation in Donbas if the implementation of the Minsk peace agreements fails.


"I've got ideas and scenarios of how to move further but I'm sure we're on the right track," he told TV Channel 112 Ukraine when answering a question if there is a "plan B" if the Minsk implementation ends in deadlock.

"We need to make Russia implement the Minsk [agreements]. Russia will anyway try to destabilize Ukraine. To achieve this, it will try to fragment it, creating political movements, parties here that will make us split," he said.
