Representatives of Ukraine have once again shown a counterproductive approach to the work of the political group. The Ukrainian party finds every time new ways to evade fulfillment of its obligations under the political items of the Package of Measures.

“Despite some success in starting discussions on the agenda, the Ukrainian negotiators are searching new ways to nullify the results of the negotiations. Their next favorite tactic was the rejection of previously approved agreements and the substitution of their essence, this relates to constitutional reform. The Ukrainian party insists on carrying out its version of decentralization without amendments concerning the special status of Republics to the Constitution, which directly contradicts the Package of Measures.

Such an attitude to the key point of the Minsk agreements reached by such a labor is only bewildering. Kiev authorities should be aware that a return to the peaceful coexistence of Ukraine and Donbass under old conditions is impossible. A special status made to remove fundamental contradictions and uncontested condition for restoring peace in the region” – Natalia Nikonorova noted.

The DPR Plenipotentiary again emphasized the need to begin a constructive discussion of political issues on the agenda, since the long-term and comprehensive renewal of peace in Donbass depends only on their implementation.
