"At least we are not aware of any prospects that could help to ensure some kind of advancement," Peskov said, responding to a request to clarify if is a need for such a meeting at the moment.

"So far, the situation, unfortunately, is not full of any positive developments. Perhaps, one shouldn’t even comment on the Ukrainian side’s complete idleness toward the implementation of Minsk accords. Meanwhile, the situation in terms of the implementation of Minsk Agreements remains quite deplorable. Besides, general situation in Ukraine, let’s say, is quite unstable; it has degraded fairly," said Peskov.
