During this round of negotiations in the political group, significant results were not achieved, but there was a certain positive precedent.

“The representative of Ukraine finally recognized that the amendments necessary for unblocking the law on Donbass special status, as well as all regulatory legal acts arising from the Package of Measures, should be adopted and published before the early local elections.

We welcome the recognition by the Ukrainian party of the necessity and priority of these actions, confirming that the coordination of local elections modalities is the final stage on political track” - Natalia Nikonorova said.

The DPR Plenipotentiary emphasized once again that in connection with this, within the framework of the Minsk agreements, a huge layer of work will have to be done together with representatives of the Republics to coordinate all legal aspects of Donbass special status, and most importantly, amendments to the constitution to consolidate it.

“Despite the fact that today we heard from the representative of Kiev a clearly idea, I want to emphasize that voicing it is not enough: we still expect the promised official written position from the Ukrainian side on these issues” - Natalia Nikonorova stated.
