MOSCOW, July 7. /TASS/. The Contact Group’s subgroup on economy is due to discuss Tuesday in Minsk options for restoring the work of the banking system in Donbas, the envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic to the talks, Denis Pushilin, has said.
"There are particular proposals in the economic subgroup - if the banking system cannot be fully restored, let’s open a branch in Donetsk and Luhansk," Pushilin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
The authorities of the self-proclaimed republics are ready to take charge of security issues. Europe has also offered its assistance in this issue, according to Pushilin.
The discussion on any economic issues is rather painful for the Ukrainian side, the Donetsk republic’s envoy said, adding: "When it comes to specific issues, Ukraine traditionally gets away.".
