DONETSK, November 27. /TASS/. Representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Ukraine held a working meeting in Donetsk on Thursday to discuss disengagement line-related issues, the DPR's to the Minsk Contract Group Denis Pushilin said.
“There was a working meeting today of the working groups of Ukraine and the Donetsk Republic, which discussed the disengagement line and the settlement of various disputes, including the wording of joint documents,” Pushilin said.
He said there had been no reaction to the Donetsk Republic’s proposal for making the airport a demilitarized zone. “Regrettably, Ukraine failed to respond in any way to that proposal, which came not only from me, but from a number of other persons interested in a peace settlement,” Pushilin said.
He added that such an option might be only a transitional one, but in principle, in accordance with the Minsk Accords, the facility should remain under the Donetsk Republic’s control.
“The Minsk Accords envisaged several phases, such as ceasefire, pullout of heavy armaments and the withdrawal of the remaining equipment and manpower. The problem is the very first item of the agreement (on the ceasefire) is being constantly abused,” Pushilin said, adding that was precisely the reason for the proposal for making the airport a demilitarized zone and deploying monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
