Putin had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of the Italian Republic Mario Draghi on November 22 where he emphasised that Kiev continued to stubbornly refuse to fulfil the Minsk agreements and the Normandy format accords. Ukraine’s provocative attempts to fuel tensions in Donbass, in part, by using weapons banned by the Package of Measures, are a source of special concern. Mr Draghi initiated the discussion of energy cooperation. Putin confirmed Russia’s willingness to provide Europe with failsafe natural gas exports on a long-term basis, including by using the potential of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
