 "This is first step to junk Minsk agreements," – Russia’s Lavrov on Ukraine’s law designed to put end to Donbas occupation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Ukraine will make a huge mistake by reneging on the Minsk agreements, if the bill on the reintegration of the Donbas is signed into law.

"I think that the one taking the first step to junk the Minsk accords will make a huge mistake. Kyiv is only a short step away from making this mistake if it finally adopts the bill on reintegration which has just passed through the second reading," RIA Novosti news agency quoted Lavrov as saying, Censor.NET reports.

He also called controversial the Ukrainian law on education.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada passed the bill on certain aspects of state policy to ensure Ukraine's state sovereignty in temporarily occupied areas in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions (the so-called "Donbas reintegration bill") on Jan. 18, 2018.
