February 25, 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 representative of political subgroup of the Contact Group on Implementation of Minsk Agreements, DPR Acting Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.

«Touching upon the situation in the south-east, it’s better to consider the general situation in Ukraine. We can see that the key figures of the Ukrainian authorities, responsible for the adoption of important political decisions, imitate the implementation of Minsk agreements by all possible means. One of the brightest examples – Law adoption «On Special Order of Self-Governance in Certain Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions». This Law was adopted in the shortest period while receiving the first package of Minsk Agreements` documents but didn’t come to force even for a day», — Natalia Nikonorova told.

DPR Acting Minister stressed that without amendments to the article of the Ukrainian Constitution determining administration and territory division any other amendments are not considered as the implementation of Package of Measures.

At the end of a sitting the decision was made to invite the OSCE representatives on the following meeting for considering variants of Donbass conflict settlement.
