Today in the work of the political group there has been no significant progress in the discussion of the main agenda issue.

“During today's meeting, we insisted on building work in the order and chronology that is specified in the Package of Measures and corresponds to the logic of this document implementation.

First of all, it is necessary to start a dialogue on the enactment of the law on the Donbass special status into force, with its subsequent consolidation in the Constitution of Ukraine. However, the Ukrainian representatives refused to discuss agenda issues. It clearly confirms the fact that progress in the working group depends on the presence of political will regarding the fulfillment of its obligations under the Minsk agreements. At the moment we have to state that there is no such will” - Natalia Nikonorova informed.

The DPR Plenipotentiary also stressed the necessity and inevitability of unblocking the negotiations in a political group, since it is the results of its work that determine the resumption of peace in Donbass and its preservation in the long term.
