MOSCOW / KYIV - The Kremlin said on Sunday some of the conditions outlined in the Minsk peace accords on eastern Ukraine must be met before a further round of peace talks can go ahead, Russian news agencies reported.
Political advisers are working on a possible round of such talks under the so-called Normandy format, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying on a state television channel. The agencies did not immediately give further details.
On Monday, Ukraine’s foreign ministry said that Russia had rebuffed attempts by Kyiv to start a dialogue over its increased military presence on Ukraine’s border.
The ministry called on Russia “to withdraw troops from the border with Ukraine, to stop belligerent rhetoric and disinformation,” according to a statement.
