В ДНР прокомментировали продление закон о статусе Донбасса

The new law has opened up a field for discussion, said Pushilin

The representative of the “Republic,” Pushilin are not waiting for improvements of the negotiations in Minsk.

The extension of Kiev of the law on the special status of Donbass opened a field for discussion, but has not resolved all the contradictions. This was stated to journalists by the head of the delegation of the DPR at the talks in Minsk Denis Pushilin, the separatist DAN Agency.

“The new law opened a field for discussion, but has not resolved all the contradictions that exist between us and Ukraine. I doubt very much that it will push Ukraine to the proper steps in the peaceful settlement of the conflict”, – said Pushilin.

DNR representative also accused the Ukrainian side of delaying the negotiation process in Minsk. Therefore, in his opinion, the law on the special status of Donbass will not be able to positively affect the progress of work in the relevant subgroup.

We will remind, on October 6, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law On creation of conditions for peaceful settlement of the situation in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which extends for another year the special status of Donbass. The adoption of the document was necessary due to the fact that on 18 October 2017 expires enacted in 2014, the year of the law on the special status individual regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

On 7 October the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the law.
