"I took the decision and informed all the involved parties, starting from those providing technical support of the process and including the president, that I had finished this stage in my life. I quit the Minsk process and I am not going to volunteer at this diplomatic field anymore," Bezsmertnyi said.
In addition, he noted that the political subgroup operated in defiance of the Minsk agreements, "Everyone agreed from the very beginning that the group will start working only after the security issues are settled. However, the first items of the Minsk deal have not been actually fulfilled. I have a reasonable question in this regard: what are we negotiating about?"
