The President of Russia emphasized the importance of the complete and unconditional implementation of the Minsk Package of Measures and the decisions made at the Normandy format summits, including the one in Paris on December 9, 2019.

In the context of certain statements made by some Ukrainian authorities, Vladimir Putin put the question bluntly – does Kiev intend to fulfil the Minsk agreements in practice?

The presidents also discussed issues of maintaining a steady ceasefire, further disengagement of forces and weapons from the line of contact and mine clearing.

The leaders expressed a willingness to continue releasing and exchanging the detainees involved in the conflict.

In the context of the forthcoming 75th anniversary of the Great Victory the Russian President emphasized the contribution of all Soviet peoples to the Victory over Nazi Germany and noted that distorting the historical truths about the events of WWII was unacceptable.

In addition, Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences over the death of Ukrainian citizens in a traffic accident in Pskov Region on February 13.
