At today's sitting of the political group, the Ukrainian party attempted to review the essence of their political commitments.

 “Every meeting, we insist on the need to follow the negotiation logic and finally begin to discuss the entry into force of the law on Donbass special status based on Steinmeier’s formula, its consolidation in the Constitution and the granting of amnesty. However, Kiev continues to ignore the instructions of the Normandy format and even more so – it attempts to cast doubt on the text of Steinmeier’s formula, that demonstrates either a lack of understanding of previously approved documents or intentional tricks in prolonging the negotiation process. Representatives of Ukraine, instead of starting to really work on issues on the political agenda, sabotage the process in a new way – they express doubts about the essence of the special status and the very possibility of granting it” – Natalia Nikonorova emphasized.  

DPR Plenipotentiary again drew attention to the need to accurately fulfill the conditions prescribed in the Package of Measures, and precisely in the order prescribed in this document, approved by the UN Security Council Resolution. Only such work can be considered constructive and lead to positive results on the political track.
