Donetsk, Feb 12 – DAN. The Donbass Republics files nearly 470 documents with the OSCE and Ukraine aimed at making progress in the talks, said DPR Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.
Today, February 12, is the sixth anniversary of the signing of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, which are the internationally recognized basis of the conflict settlement.
"The Republics ceaselessly attempted to make progress. Just an example: we send nearly 470 documents to Kiev and the OSCE concerning all aspects of the Minsk Agreements over these six years," Nikonorova said.
She added that Kiev's position has been counter-productive during these six years, and the situation has deteriorated.
The peaceful settlement of the Donbas crises is based on the Minsk Agreements dated 5 September 2014 and, followed by the 19 September 2014 Memorandum on the ceasefire implementation. On 12 February 2015 the negotiators signed the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements; it sets forth immediate and comprehensive ceasefire in effect from 15 February 2015; withdrawal of heavy weapons, establishment of a security zone; discussion of modalities of resuming social payments in Donbass; a constitutional reform in Ukraine aimed at a profound decentralization of the state’s system of government. *ot
