The appointment of Leonid Kuchma as the representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk is evidence that changes in Kiev’s negotiating positions are not expected.

He is an experienced negotiator with great experience, however, he was already the plenipotentiary of Ukraine at the Minsk talks. The return of Leonid Kuchma to the Minsk format will not cause progress in the implementation of the commitments undertaken by Kiev.
