Donetsk, June 23 – DAN. The DPR delegation to the Contact Group is ready to work on a Ukrainian road map to unblock the work of the political subgroup, said DPR Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.
"There are no good or bad draft road maps for us. We are willing to work even with a Ukrainian plan, but in this case they have to amend it to eliminate contradictions to the Minsk Agreements, which constitute 78 percent of the Ukrainian document according to our estimates."
The Contact Group talks have been in a deadlock since summer 2020, when Ukraine endorsed a decree on local elections. Its Article 4 is at odds with the Minsk Agreements. A suggestion was tabled to develop a road map to revive the political subgroup talks.
The DPR and LPR filed their drafts in October 2020, Ukraine responded after a month presenting a document with 78 pc of articles violating the Minsk Agreements. *ot
