“The countries acting as guarantors of the Minsk agreements ... Russia, Germany, France .. should carry out their share of responsibility for ensuring the provisions are fulfilled,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“To ignore that one side is not delivering on the agreements is not conducive to normalizing the situation.”
