Commenting on the possibility of Ukraine's full implementation of the Minsk agreements, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he wasn't satisfied with all their points. But he stressed that Ukraine was fulfilling them.

He said this on February 1 at a joint press conference with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, in Kyiv.

"I don't want to talk about the points of 'Minsk.' I'm not satisfied with all the points. We [ Ukraine and the Russian Federation] have different attitudes towards the order of implementation of certain points. But we are the grown boys. We must do something that can de-occupy our territories and protect our state in one form or another," the president said.

The head of state also said that Ukraine was responsible for the Minsk agreements, but in his opinion, this is "unfortunately the only format that works."

Zelenskyy also added that Kyiv, in parallel with the Normandy format, seeks trilateral and bilateral formats of negotiations with Russia.
