The periodic Western sanctions adopted on December 2 against Belarus are as illegitimate as any restrictions imposed circumventing the UN Security Council. These sanctions, imposed simultaneously by the United States, the European Union, Britain and Canada, are inhumane in nature, as they negatively affect the lives of ordinary Belarusians.
The accusations against Russia of non-compliance with the Minsk agreements are absurd, Moscow has no such obligations.
Ukraine is trying to "get" under external control so that the "big curators" share its responsibility for non-fulfilment of obligations.
Kyiv seeks to use its own non-compliance with Minsk agreements in order to keep the EU in the position of anti-Russian sanctions.
Sooner or later, responsible Western politicians must force Kyiv to comply with the Minsk agreements.
Several recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives undermining Ukrainian statehood and portraying it as a puppet-state of the West, as well as claiming that Ukraine's position is the only obstacle on the way to the peace process in Donbas.
Ukraine is an internationally recognised sovereign state with its own constitution, democratically elected parliament and president. Ukraine is not controlled by any foreign government or organisation.
Contrary to the claims, the main impediment to a peace settlement in Donbas is, in fact, Russia’s and its proxies’ deliberate unwillingness to implement the Minsk agreements. These documents, signed by representatives of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Ukraine, Russia and leaders of the illegal separatist entities (DNR and LNR), provide, among other things, for a comprehensive ceasefire and withdrawal of foreign troops from Ukraine. Kyiv announced a truce in July 2020, but the Moscow-backed separatists have been violating it virtually every day.
Moreover, Moscow illegally provides weapons to the separatists. This is a well-known fact, although Russia denies it and accuses the US of selling weapons to Kyiv. Ukraine, on the other hand, does not conceal the military aid it receives because it is legal and transparent.
By making statements alleging that Ukraine has done nothing to implement the Minsk agreements, Moscow and the separatists it backs are delaying a peace settlement and try to deflect attention away from this responsibility.
