“We always have the same situation in Minsk: Ukrainian delegates come with a piece of paper and tell us that they have a directive on what to tell, and they are not authorized to discuss anything else, and there is nothing to negotiate about,” said Daria Morozova.
“We understand the process, and we understand the aims that we follow: payment of pensions – in the Economic Subgroup, the prisoner exchange, search for the missing – in the Humanitarian Subgroup, security and withdrawal of troops – in a Political Subgroup. Representatives of the DPR in all subgroups understand why they attend Minsk talks and they are clear in what their position is. And the Ukrainian representatives are just reading their directive. How can we negotiate with these people?” she added.
