KIEV, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament has corrected the text of the draft law on its website on Wednesday, reflecting wording approved in a parliamentary vote on September 16. This vote specified the extent of self-determination agreed for the self-proclaimed republics in the settlement of the conflict between the country's east and the central government in Kiev.

The latest posting corrects earlier wording placed on the site in which it was asserted that borders would be determined by the Security Council agency which, according to the presidential administration, was a technical discrepancy. Ukraine’s parliament, not the anti-terrorism center of the Security Council, will determine the borders of areas operating under a special regime of self-government in the east of the country.

Controversial laws

Ukraine's parliament passed a law granting a special self-rule status for certain districts in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The special status is designed for three years.

The special status law was stipulated by the Minsk agreements reached in early September in the Belarusian capital on the basis of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s seven-point plan proposed two days before.

The parliament also passed a law prohibiting persecution and punishment of participants in the armed conflict in the country’s southeastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions. However, speaking earlier about the bill on amnesty for participants of hostilities in Ukraine’s embattled eastern regions, President Poroshenko said it will not be applied to certain types of crimes.

Those, who committed crimes under Criminal Code articles stipulating premeditated murder, terrorism, attempts to assassinate a state official, a law enforcement officer, a judge, rape, looting, vandalism and some other articles designed to ensure state integrity, will not be subject to amnesty
