MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Kiev’s plans to recognize the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics as "terrorist organizations" could disrupt the meetings of the Contact Group on resolving the Ukrainian crisis, the LPR’s chief negotiator said on Tuesday.
"First, if this is true, then there can be no talk of the Minsk negotiations as Ukraine will face a judicial mishap as it’s impossible to hold talks with terrorist organizations," Vladislav Deinego was quoted by the official LuhanskInformCenter news agency as saying.
Deinego’s comments come after Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, earlier on Tuesday adopted in the first reading a bill on amendments to acknowledge the republics as "terrorist organizations." The lawmakers also called on the international community to declare the self-proclaimed republics as "terrorists."
