Denis Pushilin: Ukraine currently does not have negotiating position (video)
There is no constructive approach on the part of Ukraine in the Minsk negotiating process at the moment. It was stated by 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 in the interview to the correspondent of “Oplot” TV channel.
ʺWe had a little hope that after Ukraine had extended the Donbass Special Status Act, there would be some progress, the pressure of the West would produce an effect, and the Ukrainian side would at least form its position.
Currently, Kiev has no negotiating position. The Ukrainian representatives did not declare for or against the question of the “Steinmeier formula” in written form. They find a variety of subterfuges not to discuss uncomfortable questions, and the West turns a blind eye to it,ʺ Denis Pushilin said.
In addition, the Speaker of the DPR Parliament described integration processes with the Russian Federation, which would soon become the area of his responsibility.
