The US should focus on the implementation of the Minsk agreements by Kiev, the Crimea question is resolved, said RIA Novosti the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.

Earlier, Secretary of state USA Rex Tillerson said that Washington wants to return to the issue of Crimea, but the priority remains the settlement of the situation in the Donbass.

«I would like to be optimistic and see in this statement the willingness of the US to «freeze» their claims against Russia in the Crimea and actually «invest» in search of a solution to the crisis in the South-East of Ukraine», — he said.

But, unfortunately, the MP said, while this optimism there is no reason, in view of the ambiguity of the statements made that can be read in different ways, and because of the lack of any progress in the American approaches to the Crimea for the practice — «appropriate sanctions, discrimination of the residents in visa and other issues, stringent repression of their own and other companies for cooperating with this subject of the Russian Federation».

In addition, «Russia stated very clearly on the Crimea question is resolved,» said Kosachev.

«In the same respect the South-East, Washington, it’s time to focus on the implementation of the Minsk agreements by Kiev, not Moscow — then much could have fallen into place much faster,» — the politician concluded.
