Germany: Lavrov says Normandy Quartet to push for Ukraine ceasefire

Germany, Munich
February 18, 2017 at 18:53 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that Russia, France, Germany, and Ukraine would work to implement a ceasefire and the withdrawal of heavy weapons in eastern Ukraine starting from Monday, speaking from this year's Munich Security Conference, Saturday.

Despite saying that “no big results were achieved” during the Normandy format talks, Lavrov stated that “in a small positive way, the contact group has once again agreed to start ceasefire and the withdrawal of heavy weapons to those places where they should be on February 20.”

Commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree on recognising the documents of Donbass residents, Lavrov said that the ruling “is guided solely by humanitarian reasons.”

Lavrov stated that the decree will stay in force “until the Minsk agreements are implemented, until everything that needs to be regulated is regulated.” He added that the decree enables the people in the affected regions to “legitimately come to Russia and then move by rail or air transport across the Russian Federation.”

Commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree on recognising the documents of Donbass residents, Lavrov said that the ruling “is guided solely by humanitarian reasons.”

Earlier on Saturday, Putin signed a decree which gives recognition of documents and license plates of vehicles given to the residents of eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
