According to the latest RIA Novosti, Putin held a final conference with representatives of the BRICS, which was held in Ufa. The Russian president spoke about many things, but most of all surprised by his phrase that the Ukrainian government does not want negotiations with the militia.
According to the Russian chapter, he does not know why in Kiev do not wish to hold direct talks with the leaders of gangs of self-proclaimed republics. Putin stressed that the Kiev authorities earlier said that they want to see at the talks in Minsk, representatives of Donbass, but later abandoned the negotiations themselves. Putin stressed that the truce will not be achieved if the Kiev authorities will not directly negotiate with the militants.
Putin once again plunged into arguments about the cessation of hostilities and a cease-fire, but added that to resolve the conflict first we must abide by the Minsk Agreement. It should be noted that the Russian head of his statement does at a time when the Donbass intensified attacks from Russian terrorist forces. Now in the occupied territories are operating sabotage and reconnaissance groups and used a powerful technique and large-caliber weapons.
