MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS./. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) expects that the issue of local election in Donbas will be effectively discussed at the next meeting of Contact Group’s political sub-group on January 20 and does not rule out compromises, DPR envoy Denis Pushilin said on Tuesday.
"The agenda for tomorrow stays the same. We hope for effectiveness in discussing the election, for reaching compromise. This concerns the sub-group on political issues," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Pushilin as saying.
"It is premature to talk about any concrete results," he added. "Our positions [with Kiev] are drastically different but we have to make concessions in order to fulfil this point of the Packages of measures. Not only we have to make concessions, Kiev should, too," Pushilin stressed. "Something may work out then," he concluded.
On January 20 the next session of the Contact Group on peaceful settlement in Ukraine’s east will take place in Minsk, along with the meetings of its four working sub-groups. The sub-group on political issues will kick off the meeting later today in the Belarusian capital.
