Ukraine's NSDC secretary assesses relevance of Minsk agreements
Secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov has said many provisions of the Minsk agreements regarding Donbas are irrelevant.
"Today we see the Minsk agreements do not work as we would like. Moreover, from the time they were signed and now – this is a completely different situation. A lot of changes have occurred during this time. Moreover, there are signatures under the Minsk agreements of those people who were at that time, while what we have today is a completely different world, completely different processes are taking place," he said during a TV panel show Pravo na Vladu [Right to Power] on Thursday, answering a question whether Ukraine is going to rewrite the Minsk agreements, according to the Ukrainian TSN TV news service.
"The only thing I want to note, I don't understand how and on what basis Russia believes that we must amend the Constitution. But we don't tell Russia: 'Amend your Constitution.' And why should we amend our Constitution under pressure?!" Danilov added.
