Today, 26 May, a sitting took place of Committee for public support of citizens from southeastern Ukraine in Federation Council of Russian Federation Federal Assembly chaired by Deputy Chairman of Federation Council Yuriy Vorobyev. The event was attended by the DPR Acting Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.

Presenting the report on the situation in the Republic, Natalya Nikonorova stressed that at the present moment the active reconstruction and development takes place of all the spheres of Donbass life. The bright example of that is the creation and formation of managing institutions of the Republic, establishing the industrial field, commercial structures, creation of the Republican mobile operator, holding the various events of cultural character.

The Head of the DPR Foreign Ministry told about the celebration of the Republic Day, the main event of which became the grand march of the citizens of all the cities and districts of the state. Natalya Nikonorova thanked all representatives of the Federation Council who jointly with the delegation from the Russian State Duma visited Donetsk for the participation in grand events.

The sitting’s participants raised a question of implementing the Minsk Agreements by the Ukrainian part. According to the DPR Foreign Minister, at this moment the Ukraine hasn’t implemented neither of the points of the Package of Measures. Apart from that, the Ukrainian authorities delay the negotiations by all means, neglect the norms of diplomatic protocol, ignore real and constructive suggestions offered by the representatives of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

At the end of the speech Natalya Nikonorova turned attention to the fact that the Ukrainian part had made recently many groundless and in some way populist statements on the course of the Minsk process. This proves for one more time that Ukraine intends for further sabotage of the implementation of the Package of Measures.
