The Ukrainian government approved a bill rejecting Kiev’s obligation to fulfill the Minsk agreements, the representative of the Lugansk People’s Republic at the Trilateral Contact Group for the Resolution of the Donbass Conflict Rodion Miroshnik reported on August 5 on his Telegram channel.
“The bill ‘On the basics of the state policy of the transition period’ was approved [by the Ukrainian Cabinet] at a session on August 4. This discriminatory project demonstrates the true intentions of the Kiev authorities towards the Donbass population, and it de facto rejects the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements and participation in any talks,” the LPR representative said.
According to the diplomat, the bill violates the civil and political rights of the people of Donbass and threatens their life and freedom. He believes that the bill makes the people of Donbass “second class citizens.”
“If the Verkhovna Rada [the Ukrainian parliament] approves the bill, any talks with Kiev on the implementation of the Minsk agreements will become senseless, because the bill violates almost all the paragraphs of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements,” Miroshnik stressed.
The diplomat assumed that Kiev, by approving this bill, expects to clear the territory of the DPR and the LPR of foreign nationals, and to lustrate the rest of the population of Donbass by denying them access to governmental employment.
“Nationalists will be appointed to security services on the de-occupied territories, who were selected and trained in other regions of Ukraine, and who have proven their patriotism and commitment of ideals,” Miroshnik concluded.
