Vadim pristayko said that Ukraine’s foreign Ministry has a backup plan in case “option number one doesn’t work.”
The Minister of foreign Affairs Vadym Prystayko said that the alternative to the Minsk agreement could be a peacekeeping operation, which is generally not foreseen in the Minsk process. He said this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine Monday, November 18.
Pristayko noted that the foreign Ministry is “folder option two, if option one doesn’t work.” It says that if the Minsk process is not implemented, it is necessary to have a different course of action.
“I have said many times that this can be a peacekeeping operation. The Minsk process it is generally not provided. And even when the leaders are discussing it, raises a fair question: so we come out of the Minsk agreements? That is, I didn’t say anything “anti-Ming”, on the contrary, leaders have long been discussing the possibility of changes, which include the possibility of a peacekeeping mission”, – he said.
At the same time he added that if this option is not activated, for example, Russia blocks a UN security Council decision and the mission does not appear, then, obviously, the diplomatic system gets a third option.
“And we have there are several options that have already outlined to the President in General,” added Pristayko.
We will remind that earlier Pristayko said that Ukraine is ready to compromise, setting up to the elections in the Donbass OSCE joint control over the border with Russia.
Also pristayko said that Ukraine may withdraw from the Minsk agreements, if the meeting in Normandy format will not work.
