MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics (DPR and LPR) changed the dates of local elections exclusively to give Ukraine one more chance to honor commitments on the Minsk Agreements, DPR plenipotentiary representative at the talks in Minsk Denis Pushilin said Wednesday.
"The postponement of local elections in Donbas became possible only on condition of complete implementation of the Minsk Agreements by the Ukrainian side," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Pushilin as saying. "The decision was made by us only to provide time to Kiev to implement the commitments it undertook."
On Tuesday, October 6, the DPR and LPR voiced their consent to postpone local elections in the republics from October 18 and November 1, 2015 to 2016 on condition Kiev implements the political points of the Minsk-2 in full.
In particular, the statement said, Ukraine has to grant Donbas a special status, prevent prosecution and punishment of persons participants of events in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as revote amendments to the Constituion in a new wording coordinated with the DPR and LPR.
