Zakharchenko's initiative on Malorossiya doesn't fit in Minsk process, - Gryzlov


The self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" (DPR) leader's proclamation of a new state called Malorossiya doesn't fit in the Ukrainian peace process.

Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine quoting Russia's envoy to the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine Boris Gryzlov as saying on Tuesday.

"This initiative doesn't fit in the Minsk process. I perceive this only as an invitation to a discussion, this statement has no constitutive consequences," he said.

"Most likely, this proposal has to do with information warfare and is not a subject of realpolitik," Gryzlov said.

He also believes this is a response to Kyiv's high-ranking politicians' statements that are often "unacceptable".

Earlier today, "DPR" chieftain Alexander Zakharchenko announced the establishment of a new state - Malorossiya.
