On August 3, following the results of the meeting in Minsk, special representative of the Chairman of OSCE Martin Sajdik promised to render assistance in transfer of the Petition about nonfulfillment of the Package of measures by Ukraine with signatures of Donbass residents on to the UN Security Council, TASS reports.
“Today Mr. Pushilin appealed to me with a request to assist in transfer of the petition of Donbass residents to the UN Security Council and the OSCE”, said Sajdik. “I promised to consider this issue”.
The collection of signatures under the petition about nonfulfillment by Ukraine of the UN Security Council resolution d/d February 17, 2015, “On approval of the Package of measures of the Minsk agreements implementation” was initiated by the Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko.
At the parliamentary hearings in the People’s Council of the DPR on July 19, 2016, the Head of the Republic announced the end of the signature collection process.
“Today we have finished collecting signatures for the petition to the UN Security Council. More than 300 thousand signatures have been collected. We had our say that we are ready to fulfill Minsk agreements. Kiev has shown that they are going to sabotage the Minsk agreements in every way. Thereby they discredit all the world institutions of the world, primarily the United Nations”, Alexander Zakharchenko said.
Later, the plenipotentiary representative of the DPR in the trilateral contact group at negotiations in Minsk, the Chairman of the People’s Council of the DPR Denis Pushilin said that in the Republic it was decided to continue collecting signatures for the petition about nonfulfillment of the Minsk agreements by Ukraine.
“Due to the fact that a lot of citizens’ addresses come to receiving offices of social movements, the Head of the Republic made the decision to continue signatures collection. We don’t have the right to neglect the number of provocations which is carried out by the Ukrainian side. We have no right to stop the signatures collection”, Denis Pushilin claimed.
