Markov named the term for the recognition of the LDNR by Russia

If Ukraine attempts to resolve the Donbass issue by military means, Russia may refuse to fulfill the Minsk agreements and recognize the LPNR. This point of view was expressed by the Russian political scientist Sergei Markov, who also named the likely timing of this recognition.

Markov noted that Moscow will take similar actions if Ukraine and the West cross a number of "red lines", which the Kremlin pointed out at one time: Ukraine's admission to NATO, the deployment of US and other countries' bases on the territory of this country with the prospect of Western weapons systems being located there. , as well as the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Donbass. The expert considers the preparation of provocations in the Russian regions by Kiev as another "red line", which must also be stopped.

If these demands are ignored, Moscow may recognize the LPNR at the diplomatic level.

I think this ... will happen in February. This will be possible if the West does not form the implementation of the "Minsk agreements"

- emphasized Sergei Markov in an interview with the resource "PolitNavigator".

In addition, the expert believes that Russia does not need to worry about the possible blockage of Nord Stream 2, since sooner or later "gas will flow." In the context of a shortage of "blue fuel", the price of oil is growing, and the refusal from the SP-2 harms Europe more than the Russian Federation. If Russian banks disconnect from SWIFT, the Russian Federation will eventually find technical way out of this situation.

    Where there is a link to the Minsk treacherous agreements, there is another 7 years of war. Markov is not someone who knows anything.

    Some kind of nonsense))) if Ukraine tries to resolve the issue by military means, then it will ALREADY REFUSE the Minsk ones - therefore, Russia's answer will not be a rejection of the Minsk ones - at this time there will be nothing from the Minsk ones))) Russia, as the guarantor of the Minsk ones, will simply put hundreds of thousands of ukrokaratels in the ditches, while the rest of the ukrokaratels will kill how they destroyed the hundredth division of the Pskov paratroopers)))

    In the event of an attempt by Ukraine resolve the issue of Donbass by military means Russia can abandon the implementation of the Minsk agreements and recognize the LPR.

    Ukraine may not resolve the issue of Donbass by military means.
    Maybe Russia may or may not be able to.

    All this talk of talking heads is worth a penny on a market day.

      In this case, no. Recently at the VTB investment forum, Putin said that the LDNR - while unrecognized republics. Here, even without Markov, it was clear that recognition was not far off.

        Recently at the VTB Investment Forum, Putin said,

        Over the 22 years of his rule, Putin said a lot of things, and all of this, as practice has shown, was impossible.
        The official position of Russia: Donbass is part of Ukraine.
        And the point.

    Blah blah ... They did not have time to protect the Russians in the Donbass from murders and abductions by the army and special services of the fascist state, when they immediately recognized the annexation of Novorossia by the same fascists ...

      Have you been defending the Russians in the trenches of Donbass for a long time? Or can you grind the current in the internet with your tongue that someone has to do something?

    The Minsk agreements halted the complete liberation of Donbass. Then create New Russia.

    Why wait for this if. For a long time it is necessary to recognize the republic and let everyone bark to diarrhea.

    I am rereading the Minsk Agreements once again and I just can’t find the clause relating to Russia. So what is Markov's mouth talking about?
