Poroshenko: DNR and LNR are not mentioned in the protocol of meeting of Trilateral contact group in Minsk
This was informed by Poroshenko during governmental meeting on Wednesday, September 10.
Ukraine will never go on any concessions on the issue of its territorial integrity.
President Poroshenko emphasized that the protocol on results of consultations of trilateral contact group in Minsk doesn’t say about neither federalization nor alienation of Ukrainian territory. Such formations as DNR [Donetsk People’s Republic] and LNR [Luhansk People’s Republic] are not mentioned in the document at all.
The law on special regime of local government will be submitted to Verkhovna Rada [Parliament] the next week. ‘Residents of Donbas have to choose their local government by themselves’, – the Head of State mentioned.
The adoption of this law will ensure peaceful return of territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts controlled by terrorists under Ukrainian sovereignty.
