“All state power bodies and officials of the Donetsk People’s Republic in their activities related to consultations and talks with the authorities and officials from other countries and with international organizations will be guided only by the DPR Declaration of Sovereignty,” the resolution said.
On September 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed a peace plan for settling the conflict in eastern Ukraine. It calls for ending active offensive operations by armed forces, armed units and militia groups in southeast Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk areas; withdrawing Ukrainian armed forces units to a distance that would make it impossible to fire on populated areas using artillery and all types of multiple launch rocket systems; allowing for full and objective international monitoring of compliance with the ceasefire and monitoring of the situation in the safe zone created by the ceasefire; excluding all use of military aircraft against civilians and populated areas in the conflict zone; organizing the exchange of individuals detained by force on an ‘all for all’ basis without any preconditions; opening humanitarian corridors for refugees and for delivering humanitarian cargoes to towns and populated areas in Donbass - Donetsk and Luhansk regions. At its meeting in the Belarusian capital city Minsk on September 5, the Contact Group on the resolution of the conflict in Ukraine adopted a peace plan and a ceasefire agreement. Attending the meeting were officials from Kiev, representatives of the embattled south-eastern regions of Ukraine, officials from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and Russia.
