“We are pursuing a consistent foreign policy aimed at reaching a long-term peace agreement with Ukraine and developing mutually beneficial economic and cultural ties with all countries,” Plotnitsky said in a televised speech.
The self-proclaimed republic, which declared independence from Ukraine following a referendum in May, “has no major victories on the diplomatic front yet”, Plotnitsky said.
Plotnitsky on Tuesday confirmed the OSCE observers’ report saying the unrecognized Luhansk Republic and Kiev have agreed on the strict observance of the ceasefire agreement and pullout of heavy armaments from the disengagement line.
The agreement emerged from consultations within the framework of the joint center for control and coordination of ceasefire, held in Luhansk on November 29.
