– “Poroshenko will arrive in Berlin on Monday, where he will hold bilateral talks with Angela Merkel. Although officially the topic of the meeting is not designated, all understand that we are talking about performing (or rather, failure) of the conditions of the Minsk agreements. Frankly, Poroshenko called on the carpet.
The trip to Berlin for Petro Poroshenko does not promise to be a pleasant stroll — Angela Merkel has long ruled in favor of Vladimir Putin and has repeatedly admonished lack of reticence of Ukraine.

For in the Complex of measures on implementation of the Minsk agreements says very clearly: on an ongoing basis (p. 11).
I think in Berlin are well informed about the problems faced by Ukraine: it is not terribly want to implement the Minsk agreement. Understood in Kiev that the country received almost the last chance. “We have a greater risk to remain alone with Russia, without political, military and technical support and we will remain without sanctions support,” not so long ago recognized Petro Poroshenko, referring to the consequences of possible failure of the vote on the amendments to the Constitution.
