MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. Ukraine is trying to replace the Minsk agreements with its version of a roadmap to defuse the conflict in the Donbass region, heads of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR, LPR) to the Contact Group talks told TASS on Monday.
"(Ukrainian President Pyotr) Poroshenko hopes that the roadmap will replace the Package of Measures," said LPR envoy Vladislav Deynego.
"The roadmap does not replace the Package of Measures, it spells out the details. What Poroshenko is talking about is some new agreements. However, all Normandy Four participants have expressed their commitment to the current document," DPR envoy, Denis Pushilin, noted.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko met in Berlin last week to discuss 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. This document is expected to be drafted and approved until the end of November.
Commenting on the results of the summit, Poroshenko said that the roadmap should stipulate the transfer of control over Ukraine’s state border with Russia in the Donbass conflict zone to an armed OSCE mission until local elections envisaged by the Minsk agreements are held. However, Point 9 of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements states that control over the state border can only transferred to Kiev and only after local elections are held.
