MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. The regions of Donbas need a separate law on a special status that will explain in detail all its aspects, the envoy of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic to the Contact Group, Vladislav Deinego, said on Tuesday.
"It would be well-timed to adopt a separate law "On special status" to give a full interpretation in all the aspects of the special status of certain areas in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," Deinego told the LuganskInformCentre.
On Monday, Ukraine’s parliament speaker Volodymyr Groysman said that the draft law on the special order of self-governance in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, submitted by President Petro Poroshenko, does not contain any provisions on the special status of Donbas.
The document only mentions those territories where the elections should be held and where a special order of the local self-government is due to be established, Groysman said.
According to Deinego, the document in fact speaks about the special status without mentioning the word "status." The law will define the special aspects of the legislation’s application and the responsibility of Ukraine in certain areas.
"Therefore, this law only lays foundations for a special status, which come from the special order of self-governance, and in fact it would be appropriate to adopt a separate law on the special status of Donbass," Deinego said.
