"We all have a shared interest in ensuring that the Minsk agreements do not remain meaningless pieces of paper. And Russia is interested because, as President Putin has stated many times, we want to see a stable, prosperous, friendly and predictable Ukraine, as the people of our two countries are close, whatever may have been," Peskov told a Russian TV channel yesterday, October 22.
