Ukraine must resolve the issue with the legislative acts on special status of Donbass and Amnesty, said Russia's permanent Representative to the OSCE Alexander Lukashevich.
"we finally solved the issue with the legislative acts on special status of Donbass and Amnesty. These documents physically exist but do not function. They ought to enact, as required by the Minsk agreement and consensus "Norman summit" in Paris on 2 October. Need quickly, without any artificial linkages and delays to coordinate with Lugansk and Donetsk in the modalities of local elections ", - he said at a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council.
Russia's permanent representative said that the refusal of these regions from hosting elections in October-November gives the parties additional time to harmonize the law on local elections, although considerable time may be required for its passage through Parliament and for the organization of elections.
According to Lukashevich, "the key issue is constitutional reform, as envisaged in the" measures "." Need to coordinate with the Donbass norms concerning the Permanent special status of certain regions of Luhansk and Donetsk regions, the incorporation of these norms in the Constitution of Ukraine in the form of permanent, not transitional provisions, " he stressed.
