MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) will insist on completing the discussion of the regulations and endorsing the final version of the document during the talks of the Contact Group’s political subgroup, head of the DPR delegation at the talks Denis Pushilin told Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
"During the talks of the subgroup [on political issues] it is important for us now to complete the discussion of the regulations, and that’s precisely what we will insist on," he said.
Pushilin noted that because of Ukraine’s reluctance to adopt the regulations "a month of negotiations had been spent in vain."
"The OSCE has sent the framework regulations, which are now discussed at the talks. Our suggestions to amend the document have been put forward. The matter depends entirely on Ukraine," the envoy said.
The meeting of the political subgroup is held on Tuesday in Minsk, Belarus. It is expected to last until November 4.
Representatives of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics pointed to the need to adopt the regulations and the plan of negotiations on October 6, during one of the rounds of the talks of the Contact Group and its working subgroups. In the opinion of Pushilin and his Luhansk counterpart Vladislav Deynego, such steps are necessary for making the work within the framework of Minsk-2 more consistent and constructive.
