Unfortunately, the Ukrainian party is unable to assimilate the basic principle: the Minsk agreements are the one comprehensive document, not a menu from which you can choose only what you want.
For example, the principle of “all for all”, which should underlie the exchange, is a principle contained in the Minsk agreements, so the meaning and terminology of the peace agreements cannot be crossed out.
Until now, 50 out of 51 people transferred by the Ukrainian side in the framework of previous exchanges have been deprived of their rights and freedoms, since until now official Kiev has not completed all the procedures necessary to restore these rights, according to which it has undertaken obligations.
It is impossible to implement one thing, another one not to implement, and the third one to cross out - for example, block social payments, but demand payment for water.
More than 2 months ago, we sent a draft roadmap for the restoration of socio-economic ties, but we do not observe any real actions from the Ukrainian side, except for the next populist public statements.
