"A key argument, except for the withdrawal of troops and artillery from the territory of Ukraine, is to restore full control over the Ukrainian state border. If the control hasnt been restored, it means violation of a basic principle contained in the Protocol, which was signed in Minsk," said the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk to the journalists at the airport "Boryspil" on Friday, September 26, following his working visit to the United States.

The Protocol mustnt be considered as the points to the liking of the Russians and the points not to their liking. It is not the menu. Each point should be followed, he said.

After these arrangements are executed, according to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, "there is a possibility for us to get to proper peaceful negotiations", "In these peace talks should be involved both the European Union and the United States of America. At the time they signed the Budapest Memorandum, and we need factual, not just written, guarantees of our territorial integrity and independence".
