During the implementation of the Minsk agreements, Ukraine can rely only on nominal sovereignty over the now occupied Donbass. This statement was made by Russian political strategist Alexey Chesnakov, member of Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Vladislav Surkov.
"We need to be realistic. Ukraine, ultimately, will have nominal, but not real sovereignty over the Donbass. It does not need to count on anything more. Ukraine will not get more from the Minsk agreements", - he wrote in his Telegram channel.
