Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said any agreement on resolving the conflict in Ukraine must protect the rights of all citizens living in the country.
At a joint news conference with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, Mr Lavrov said there could only be a political situation to the conflict in eastern Ukraine, which has killed more than 5,000 people.
Mr Lavrov also accused the Ukraine military of trying to gain more ground in east Ukraine to "use as leverage" during peace talks in Minsk.
He added that control over the Russia-Ukraine border could not be used as a condition of peace as that issue needed to be agreed with pro-separatist rebels.
