US statement on Minsk agreements anniversary

Russia-US2.jpgThe US Department of State has issued a press release on the third anniversary (12 February 2018) of the Minsk Agreements saying that “Sadly, Russia continues to disregard its commitments… stoking a hot conflict in Ukraine that has cost over 10,000 lives…”

The statement says that US sanctions on Russia “will remain in place until Russia fully implements its commitments under the Minsk agreements”, and the “separate Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns the peninsula to Ukraine”.
