MOSCOW, March 13 – RIA Novosti. Former Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly said on the air of the Apostrof TV channel about the exhaustion of the possibilities of sanctions pressure from the West and Kiev against Russia. it is unlikely that we – both the Western world and Ukraine – will be able to find some tools that can only by means of pressure, by means of force, compel Russia to peace, “Chaly said.
He also expressed the opinion that Russia will change its position on the settlement in eastern Ukraine only if a “new conceptual approach” is proposed related to the formation of a security system for the EU and Ukraine after the end of the conflict in the region. It was then, according to Chaly, that Kiev will be able to “adapt the Minsk agreements to the needs of Ukraine.”
