Minsk Process Needs a Re-start – Former British Prime Minister, David Cameron
15 September 2017

The process provided by the Minsk peace agreement does not work at present and needs to be re-started, former British Prime Minister, David Cameron (2010-16) has said.

Cameron was speaking at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) 14th Annual Meeting held by the Viсtor Pinchuk Foundation.

“Great Britain and the United States played an important part to help Ukraine when it was having tough times. How have things evolved since then? The Minsk process does not work. We need to re-start the Minsk process, heavy military hardware needs to be removed and Ukraine need to re-establish control over the Ukraine-Russia border”, Cameron said.

Cameron also said that despite the wide-spread opinion, since the referendum regarding Britain’s membership of the European Union, contact between the British and Ukrainian governments has increased.

“If we are speaking about Ukraine, after Brexit there has been more contact at the ministries level, more assistance to Ukraine from Great Britain”, Cameron revealed.

The online stream of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) 14th Annual Meeting will be available online at yes-ukraine.org as well as on the websites of our media partners, in both English and Ukrainian.
