MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have proposed amendments to the Ukrainian Constitution and the draft law on local elections in Donbas.
The document was published on Wednesday on the website of the Donetsk news agency.
Under the amendments, "certain districts with a special status," which are acknowledged an integral part of Ukraine, should be formed in the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions.
These districts should be given the right to use Russian and other national languages and to sign contracts with foreign companies, the document says.
According to the document, the Ukrainian government should sign agreements with these districts on economic, social and cultural development.
