DONETSK, October 20./TASS/. The envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic to the Contact Group, Denis Pushilin, voiced support on Thursday for the idea to work out a roadmap for the settlement in Ukraine’s troubled Donbass.
"The European Union has an understanding that a road map is needed, it is necessary to take a clear stand as to what clauses are implemented - political issues, clauses on security, humanitarian and economic issues," he told Rossiya 24 television on Thursday.
This is also important to stop Ukraine’s "repeated assertions that it will cease hostilities, withdraw military hardware and get the border and then it will fulfill all the rest," he said. "This does not conform to any agreement," Denis Pushilin said.
Berlin hosted on Wednesday a Normandy format meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko on the settlement in eastern Ukraine.
No documents were signed at the meeting. Nevertheless, an agreement was reached on developing a roadmap for the implementation of the Minsk agreements. It is expected that this document will be drawn up and approved until the end of November.
