Minsk agreement is Putin’s red herring. Ukraine must strengthen army and step up pressure on Russia – Yulia Tymoshenko

The Minsk agreement is another Kremlin’s shenanigan. The peace in Donbas will be reached diplomatically only given the world’s enlarged pressure on Putin, Yulia Tymoshenko said, speaking on Kanal 5 late May 7.

The Minsk agreement is Putin’s tactics to buy time and supply heavy weapons and Russian troops to Donbas to prepare for further aggression, she said.

Ukraine should abide by the Minsk agreement. Simultaneously, Kyiv must switch to a new format of talks with Russia – US, EU, Ukraine and Russia, Tymoshenko said.

Ukraine must strengthen its army, file charges against Russia with the Hague tribunal, demand more sanctions and apply its own sanctions on Russia, the politician said.
