Recognition of DPR, LPR does not correlate with Minsk Agreements - Peskov

MOSCOW. Feb 16 (Interfax) - The recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk (DPR) and Luhansk (LPR) People's Republics does not correlate with the need to fulfill the Minsk Package of Measures, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"Obviously, their recognition does not correlate with the Minsk Agreements. This is really so," Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

Journalists asked whether the republics would not be recognized as long as the Kremlin pledged commitment to the Minsk Agreements.

"The president said that the fulfillment of the Minsk Package of Measures was the primary objective," Peskov said.
