The militia of Donbass will not be able to be elected to the Verkhovna Rada in case of the termination of the conflict and establishing peace in the region. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim pristayko in the program “Svoboda words” on ICTV channel.
According to the Minister, this question is for Kiev’s political “red line”. “The militia will not become deputies… for Example, people who shot at our people, will not be back and will not sit with the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada”, — said Pristayko.
He added that the security of the Ukrainian people, the return to the country’s territory, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine is a priority of President Vladimir Zelensky. Pristayko noted that the new Ukrainian authorities are trying to complete what was begun by their predecessors, starting with the Minsk agreements.
The politician added that if the Minsk process fails, and “we’re stuck in it, lose people, money, and the tumor, which “lives in us”, poisoning us, gives us ahead start, does not develop as a state”, that Kiev is necessary to appeal to the international community to create a mission “for peace between us.”
Earlier Pristayko said that the elections not to Kiev-controlled territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions will be held when there will be provided security. The head of foreign Ministry stressed that the vote will take place exclusively in accordance with Ukrainian legislation, and also under condition of presence of an independent observer of the OSCE.
On 1 October, the participants of the trilateral contact group on conflict settlement in the South-East of Ukraine put their signatures under the document with the “formula Steinmeier” for a peaceful settlement. It defines the mechanism for fixing the special status of Donbass and Amnesty and the holding of elections on uncontrollable Kiev territories of the unrecognized republics.
Part of Donbass is out of control in Kiev as a result of armed conflict. In April 2014, the Ukrainian government began a military operation against the Donetsk and Lugansk national republics, which declared independence from Kiev after the change of the Central government. Kiev has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the fighting. Russia denies all allegations, pointing out their unfounded.
