Minsk Agreement Osce

The full text of the agreement reads:[44][45] Of all aspects of the colony, Kiev artificially overcame the last aspect of border controls in the Donbass. They are trying to make it a starting point for progress in the implementation of the Minsk agreements. In the meantime, according to point 9 of the package, the self-defence forces must begin to transfer control of the border to Kiev on the first day after the municipal elections in certain areas of the Donbass. The transfer would be in consultation and consultation with representatives of the Donbass and would end according to a comprehensive political settlement, the cornerstone of which would be to grant permanent special status to the Donbass. During their intensive discussions, the co-chairs and foreign ministers discussed the implementation of an immediate humanitarian ceasefire, possible parameters for monitoring the ceasefire and examining key elements of a comprehensive solution, in line with the joint declaration of 10 October. The co-chairs and foreign ministers agreed to meet again in Geneva on 29 October to discuss, reach an agreement and, in accordance with a timetable to be agreed, begin the implementation of all necessary measures to achieve a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, in accordance with the fundamental principles accepted by the Azerbaijani and Armenian leaders. Some rather contradictory statements came from Kiev before the meeting of the “Quartet” in Paris, during which Kiev not only vehemently refused a direct dialogue with the Donbass, but also granted the region special status and amnesty for its inhabitants. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadim Pristaiko announced the adoption at the Normandy Summit of certain decisions that do not appear to have been agreed with the Donbass or with another participant in the format. If they are not adopted, it threatens the group with a Plan B for the Minsk agreements until the Minsk process is out. This approach, at least unassmaning, of the preparations for the meeting in Normandy raises legitimate concerns. We call on the Kiev authorities to use their influence and encourage the Ukrainian government to put an end to the escalation of irresponsible rhetoric and to begin fully implementing the Minsk package of measures aimed at achieving a lasting peace in the Donbass.

The Protocol on the Results of the Trilateral Contact Group Consultations, or commonly known as the Minsk Protocol, is an agreement to end the war in the Donbass region of Ukraine, signed on 5 September 2014 by representatives of that country, the Russian Federation, the Donetsk People`s Republic (DPR), the Luhansk People`s Republic (LPR) and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). [1] [2] [3] It was signed after extensive discussions in Minsk, Belarus, under the auspices of the OSCE. The agreement, which followed several previous attempts to end the fighting in the Donbass, resulted in an immediate ceasefire. It was unable to stop fighting in the Donbass[4] and was therefore followed by a new package of measures, called Minsk II, which was approved on 12 February 2015. [5] This has also failed to bring an end to the fighting, but the Minsk agreements remain the basis for a future solution to the conflict, as agreed at the Normandy meeting. With the 2015 Ukrainian municipal elections scheduled for 25 October, DPR leader Alexander Zakhartchenko adopted a decree on 2 July ordering the sending election on 18 October. [68] He stated that this measure was “in accordance with the Minsk agreements”. [69] According to Zakharchenko, this meant that the DPR had “started to implement the Minsk agreements independently”. [69] Zakharchenko stated that the elections would be held “on the basis of The Ukrainian Law on the Status of Temporary Self-Domination of Certain Districts of the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions”, as they were not in contradiction with the DPR Constitution and laws. [69] In the midst of a sharp reduction in violence, after the implementation of Minsk II was agreed on 1 September, the Four Of Normandy met on 2 October.
