Special status to E. Ukraine regions, amnesty to combatants
BTW, you never enlightened us Fleming. What have the rebels offered in the realm of flexibility?September 16, 2014
The Ukrainian parliament has approved laws on special status for the Donetsk and Lugansk Regions, as well as amnesty for those participating in the hostilities. The law on the special status of Lugansk and Donetsk Regions guarantees the right to use and study Russian or any other language in Ukraine. It also states that local elections are to take place in the regions on December 7. The head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Igor Plotnitsky, earlier welcomed the law on special status for Ukraine’s eastern regions proposed by President Poroshenko.
“The law on the special status of Donbass generally reflects the priorities we voiced at the September 1 negotiations. That’s why, even though a lot remains unclear, we may say that a peaceful solution has received its first chance of being implemented,” Plotnitsky told RIA Novosti.
As for the rebels in eastern Ukraine, so far they have not shown any sign of being responsible, let alone flexible or reasonable.
Do you deny that the current government in Kiev has on numerous occasions declared that they want to crush the rebels militarily?
