Russia insists on granting the region special status.

Moscow insists on the introduction of the special status of Donbass “formula Steinmeier”.

This was stated by the representative of Russia in the contact group on settling the situation in Ukraine, Boris Gryzlov, RIA Novosti reported.

“The Russian Federation has consistently insisted on the enactment of the law on the special status of Donbass “formula Steinmeier,” the early breeding of forces and means of the parties in the village Lugansk”, – he said.

Recall the “formula Steinmeier” (Frank-Walter Steinmeier – former foreign Minister of the country) defines the mechanism of introduction in action of the law on special order of local government in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions on a temporary basis on election day and on an ongoing basis — after the publication of the OSCE report on the election results.

Earlier, Russia has already stated that the Donbas special status required. In turn, in Kiev said that the conditions for special status to the Donbass no.
