Some aspects of Minsk agreements should be changed – Zelensky

President Volodymyr Zelensky has stated that some aspects of the Minsk agreements should be changed.

He said this during the political talk show Right to Power on 1+1 TV channel on Thursday evening, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"It will be very difficult to do, but we have to do it," Zelensky said when asked if the Minsk accords could be changed.

The Ukrainian president reminded that almost four years had passed since the signing of the Minsk agreements. In this context, he noted that "everything is changing in our lives. This was not my team that signed “Minsk”, but we, as the authorities, have to fulfill the terms which the then government agreed on”.

"But I am sure that we will be able to change some things and will change them because the transfer of the Ukrainian state border under our control after the elections is definitely not our position," Zelensky stressed.

As Ukrinform reported, a summit of the leaders of the Normandy Four countries took place in Paris on December 9. The event was attended by President Volodymyr Zelensky, Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
