At today's sitting we expected that the new representatives of Ukraine will change the rhetoric in favor of a constructive approach to the negotiation process. In this regard, we raised the issue of establishing a direct dialogue between two parties to the conflict - the Republics and Ukraine - in the framework of the relevant group on economical issues.

"In particular, we proposed such fields of work as mutual coordination of actions to lift the Ukrainian economic blockade, coordination of the procedure for mutual admission of industrial and humanitarian goods, coordination of management of industrial assets, distribution of income and expenses from their activities, as well as the establishment of a mechanism of payments to Republics’ citizens of compensation for damage caused by the Ukrainian authorities as a result of the blockade, including the loss of jobs, reduction of wages, debts of pensions and social payments" – DPR Plenipotentiary noted.
