It was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin on Twitter. According to him, Ukraine will immediately proceed to the ratification and implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU. In addition, the Head of the department said that Ukraine would not "mistake the wish of our Russian colleagues for the reality".

In addition, Klimkin summed up yesterday's talks in Minsk. "There is communication and it is the main thing. Although nothing was easy for us and will not be," he added.

It is to be recalled, that Russia intends to make a proposal to change the basic Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union and its Annexes. According to the Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Alexey Ulyukaev, they are talking about specific amendments to be made in the text, including the text of basic Agreement. Russia wants to present the new text of the Agreement in Brussels during September 12 meeting.

Earlier, President Poroshenko reported that on August 30 in Brussels, Ukraine would also provide information to the leaders of the European Union on further actions on Agreement implementation.
