The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, says that countries of the West, together with Berlin, did not plan to implement the Minsk agreements.
Should the former German Chancellor Angela Merkel have doubted NATO’s commitment during her time in office? In a recent interview, she said that the Minsk agreements of 2014 are “a failed attempt to give Ukraine time.” But on this occasion, Merkel expressed doubt that NATO could’ve done as much as they are now.
According to Katya Zakharova, “it turns out that Germany and the Western countries were not going to implement the Minsk agreements, they imitated the adherence to the Security Council resolution, but in reality, they pumped Kyiv with weapons. The collective West ignored all the crimes committed in the Donbass in order to take a decisive blow to Russia.”
