Putin demands Ukraine extend law on special status for Donbas

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Ukraine should extend the law on a special status for Donbas.

Putin told this to reporters after the BRICS summit in Brazil on Thursday, November 14, according to Hromadske.

“We hear from the leaders of Ukraine that another law on a special status for Donbas may be adopted. Which one? This is an absolutely key thing. If they approve something that is not agreed with ‘LPR’ and ‘DPR,’ then everything will instantly go into a deadlock,” he said.

According to Putin, a “Steinmeier formula” also loses meaning, because it “is merely a tool for implementing the special status law.”

The Russian president also recalled that the law on a special status for Donbas expires on December 31, 2019.

“[The law] expires on the 31st [of December]. Then what? What are we going to do in the Normandy format? This is a key question,” he said.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier that Ukraine would adopt a new law on a special status for Donbas, but this status would not be secured in the Constitution of Ukraine.

  • “If they approve something that is not agreed with ‘LPR’ and ‘DPR,’ then everything will instantly go into a deadlock,”

    Cut the crap Putin. After yesterday’s revelations, these DPR and LPR terrorists have about as much say in what goes on in Donbas, as I have in NK.

    • Here we go again, the evil dwarf is making demands on a sovereign country and claims he is not fighting in the war.
      “What are we going to do in the Normandy format?”
      Point out that you are a nazi occupier that has committed thousands of war crimes and we will arrest you and put you into a cage for display at Maidan with a platform over the top so people can walk by and relieve themselves at will.
