“Russia continues to insist that those who are patrons to the Kiev authorities nonetheless drop their worthless attempts to pressure us, and if they are actually interested in the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements, they should get this from their clients in Kiev in the end,” Ryabkov said.


Ukraine has been bogged down in the major political crisis since 2014.
