Following negotiations in Paris to de-escalate the situation, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba indicated on Thursday that Russia is likely to stay on a diplomatic track with Ukraine and the West for at least two weeks.

What they’re saying: “Nothing has changed, this is the bad news,” Kuleba said of the talks in Paris, where Moscow held security talks with diplomats from Ukraine, France and Germany on Wednesday.

  • “The good news is that advisers agreed to meet in Berlin in two weeks, which means that Russia for the next two weeks is likely to remain on the diplomatic track,” he said at a news briefing in Copenhagen, following a meeting with his Danish counterpart Jeppe Kofod.
  • The so-called “Normandy” discussions in Paris were considered as a first step in defusing broader tensions in eastern Ukraine’s separatist struggle, which is on the verge of turning into a full-fledged war.
  • “Unfortunately, the biggest demand that Russia has is that Ukraine engages directly in talks with Russian proxies in Donetsk and Luhansk instead of negotiating with Russia. This will not happen, this is a matter of principle,” Kuleba said.

Donetsk and Luhansk are self-declared republics in eastern Ukraine’s Donbass.
