Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPR Natalia Nikonorova
Experts discuss the initiative of the authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics. We are talking about an initiative, which concerns the possible expansion of the so-called Normandy format to resolve the situation in Donbas.
Official Donetsk and Lugansk expressed the idea of holding a "one-time meeting" of political advisers of the Normandy format with expanded participation. At the moment, the aforementioned format includes Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France. According to the LDNR authorities, in the "one-time version" it would be possible to hold a meeting with the invitation of representatives of the republics of Donbass, as well as the representative of the USA.
In Donetsk and Lugansk, in this way, they actually responded to Kiev's initiative to expand the Normandy format by including the United States of America in it.. In the DPR and LPR, as it appears, trying to assess the reaction of Kiev after a response proposal, which actually consists of the following: if the United States and include in the "Normandy process", then only when the people's republics are included in it.
The situation was commented on by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPR Natalia Nikonorova. According to her,, the republic does not support changes in the Normandy format, but allows a one-time option for the presence of a US representative at the negotiating platform, provided that Republican representatives are present at it.
According to Natalia Nikonorova, this approach will demonstrate parity and comprehensive coverage. Added, that Ukraine continues to build a wall of information profanation and demonstrate that, that Kiev does not make any decisions without the American side.
Recall, that the former president of Russia (during the Direct Line) pointed out the lack of meaning in a meeting with Vladimir Zelensky, since Kiev is not the center of decision-making on the fate of Ukraine. Vladimir Putin named Washington as such a center..
Although the meeting can be discussed, if, of course, it has some meaning.
