MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Leader of Ukraine's self-proclaimed  Luhansk People’s Republic, Igor Plotnitsky, called on Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday to withdraw the bill on introducing amendments to the Donbas special status law.

On Monday, Poroshenko submitted a bill to the Ukrainian parliament on amending Article 10 of the law on the special order of self-governance in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions under which the law will be implemented only after local elections are held in the region.

"In fact, Poroshenko’s amendments ruin the peace process. But the Ukrainian president still has time to come to his senses. He should revoke his amendments from the Verkhovna Rada and join the dialogue with the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics as envisaged by the set of measures [on Minsk agreements implementation]," Plotnitsky was quoted by the LuganskInformCentre as saying.

Plotnitsky explained that Poroshenko should coordinate the amendments with the self-proclaimed republics before submitting them to the parliament. This was mentioned in points 4 and 12 of the set of measures.

"On my part, I confirm that I’m ready for the dialogue," Plotnitsky stressed.
