MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. The Ukrainian side needs to name the dates for implementing the Minsk peace deal and strictly comply with the timeframe, the envoy of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic to the Minsk talks, Vladislav Deinego, has said.
Deinego commented on the statement of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Monday that Kiev plans to seek linking all points of the February 12 Minsk accords to certain dates.
"I think now we need to use Poroshenko’s proposal and force Ukraine to name the particular dates for fulfilling certain steps on implementing the Minsk agreements," Deinego told the LuganskInformCenter.
The sides need to set the deadline for agreeing on modalities of holding elections in Donbas, for preparing a draft law on elections and submitting it to the parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, he said.
"First of all, Minsk needs to be implemented, and to this aim certain tasks have to be set before the particular performers. I hope Poroshenko will do this, everything is in his hands," Deinego said.
He reminded that in May last year Kiev ignored the proposals on the Donbas elections and the constitutional reform, stressing that the Ukrainian side only "simulated the process."
"Now we need to try to stick to this wise idea in the flow of Poroshenko’s manipulations and force Ukraine to act," Deinego said, adding that he hopes Kiev will show a constructive stance at the upcoming talks of the Contact Group and its subgroups in Minsk.
