“Russia can do the same. There is a new President, you always said that you still can’t work. Now elected a new one, and you could also send some kind of rhetorical flowers. Said we will make the first point of the Minsk agreements — a complete cease-fire; or, on this occasion, we will release 24 of the seaman; or bridge in Stanitsa Luganskaya.
