Kyiv can regain control over border checkpoints in eastern Ukraine only with the consent of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk people’s republics, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"I have read the Kyiv statement regarding the Milan meeting outcomes and the agreement to establish control all along the Russian-Ukrainian border; it said all checkpoints would be returned to Ukrainian border guards and customs officers shortly. This is not true," Lavrov said in a lecture of the United Russia party's Civil University Project.

"In order to bring these checkpoints back under control of Ukrainian customs officers and border guards and redeploy the Ukrainian authorities in that region at all, it is necessary to speak with the militia who are currently controlling these checkpoints," he stated.
