The Chairman of the DPR People’s Council, the Permanent Plenipotentiary Representative of the DPR in the Contact group’s negotiations in Minsk Denis Pushilin commented on the enactment of the Ukrainian law on “Reintegration” of Donbass.
ʺWe have never had any illusions about Ukraine’s plans for Donbass, especially after the AFU used all kinds of their weapons in our territory, including aviation and heavy artillery.
Unfortunately, in common sense failed to prevail among the Ukrainian politicians. There was little hope that they would change their minds and the “Reintegration” law would not be adopted, but it was signed and entered into force.
This law creates conditions for a serious escalation of the conflict on the line of contact. The norms enshrined therein violate many international conventions and the legislation of Ukraine itself. But this will not prevent them from being implemented,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
