Volcker urges to prolong the law on the status of Donbass


It will give the chance to keep the sanctions against Russia connected with a situation in Ukraine, the diplomat says. The special representative of State Department of the USA for Ukraine Curt Volcker has urged the Verkhovna Rada to prolong operation of the Law "About a Special Order of Local Government in Certain Districts of the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions". He has told about it at the YES conference, the UNIAN reports." [Ukraine] has adopted the law on a special order (local government on Donbass - an edition), it has adopted the law on amnesty, she is ready to hold local elections... The Ukrainian authorities can't introduce these ideas until territories are occupied. We have to concentrate attention that territories became disoccupied", - Volcker has emphasized. According to him, "it is very important that Ukraine has prolonged operation of the law on a special order" not to give to the Russian Federation the chance to use it against Ukraine. Volcker emphasizes that extension of operation of this law will promote saving sanctions of the EU against Russia. "As you know, opinions of many people in the EU come down to the fact that they would like to cancel sanctions even if Russia has made nothing for performance of her part of the Minsk Agreement", - Volcker has reminded. Earlier in OSCE have said that prolongation of the law on the special status of Donbass can promote introduction of the UN peacekeeping mission. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
