LUHANSK, December 22. /TASS/. Head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky said on Monday he is ready to take part in the Contact Group meeting in Minsk if a concrete document is coordinated.
“If a clear document is worked out, Alexander Zakharchenko (DPR head) and I may go to Minsk. If there is no such document and if the meeting starts to be coordinated again, our representatives will go,” Plotnitsky said.
At the moment, the date of the Contact Group meeting remains open. He said the meeting is delayed by those who benefit from the war in eastern Ukraine.
“The date of the Minsk talks has not been coordinated yet. I believe that primarily, this brings benefit to those who make money. According to official data, Ukraine spends at least 100 million hryvnias (over $6 million) on the war in Donbas. The longer it will last the more money they will make,” Plotnitsky said.
Kiev appoints new representatives who will hold talks. “They ask to meet. So we’ll meet and talk. We’ll hold talks until there is a real possibility to change the situation to the better by political talks and not by bloodshed,” he said.
At the same time, Plotnitsky said the appearance of new people at the talks could lead to launching the process again. However, he said the Contact Group may meet before the end of the year.
