Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The thing with Minsk II and Normandy Four is that it's a no-go for Ukraine for two reasons:
  • negotiating with the "separatists" means admitting it's a civil war and not Russian aggression contrary to 7 year narrative so far.
  • if the population of Donetsk gets a say in Ukrainian politics, the current opposition is likely to gain power (at least in a democracy it would) and Ukraine would never, ever join NATO but reform good relations with Russia.

Both of these are unthinkable for the current regime in Kyiv. Nor are they popular in places that support the current regime in Kyiv, either.
