The Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the permanent plenipotentiary representative of the DPR in the Contact group at negotiations in Minsk Denis Pushilin participated in “Sunday night with Vladimir Solovyov” programme on “Russia-1” TV channel.
The plenipotentiary representative commented on the adoption of ‘reintegration’ bill by the Ukrainian parliament on first reading and the year-long extension of Donbass Special Status Act.
ʺUkraine is not a decision-maker, as has been demonstrated once again. The West has all resources and capacity to put pressure on Ukraine at the right time so that a bill can be introduced, amended, voted and signed in three days.
Nevertheless, we encountered situations in which Germany and France said that nothing could be done with Ukraine because it was a sovereign state. As we now aware, it is no longer true,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
