Russia convened the UN Security Council, brazenly claiming Ukraine's "failure to fulfill" the Minsk agreements: details
The aggressor country Russia has once again convened the United Nations Security Council to "complain" about Ukraine. This time, it was about Kyiv's alleged violation of the Minsk agreements, which Moscow itself has never actually implemented.
It is noteworthy that the members of the UN Security Council decided to meet at the request of the aggressor on the anniversary of the resolution. The meeting will begin at 17:00 Kyiv time on February 12, Ukrinform reports.
The agreements, commonly referred to as Minsk-2, were signed between Ukraine and Russia in mid-February 2015. On February 17, the UN Security Council voted in favor of a resolution approving these agreements.
The Kremlin has never fulfilled the Minsk agreements during the war in Donbas, but has constantly accused Ukraine of violating them, which it continues to do even in the face of a full-scale invasion.
Before the invasion, on February 22, 2022, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin claimed that the Minsk agreements no longer existed because Russia had "recognized the independence" of the Ukrainian territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions (L/DNR.
Last week, Russia had already convened the UN Security Council to discuss the Ukrainian Armed Forces' strike on the enemy in the temporarily occupied Lysychansk, when the "Minister of Emergency Situations" and two so-called "LPR" deputies were killed. Instead, at the meeting, the Europeans pointed out to Russia that it was the country that occupied Ukrainian territories and continues to kill civilians, including children.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the head of the Munich Security Conference, Christoph Goisgen, recently suggested that Ukraine should end the war through negotiations with Russia. He said that the Minsk agreements, which failed, could be used as a basis for "peace" with the aggressor.
