Steinmeier admits holding elections in Donbas impossible – Head of Ukrainian delegation to PACE13.10.2016 15:45 246
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has admitted that it is so far impossible to hold elections in Donbas.
Head of the Ukraine’s delegation to PACE Volodymyr Aryev posted this on his Facebook page.
"I put a few questions to Steinmeier. He admitted that it was so far impossible to hold elections in Donbas. He admitted that it was so far impossible to agree on the special status of certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. He believes that there is alternative to ‘Minsk’ and that much has to be done still. He did not answer to a part of my question related to strengthening sanctions against Russia," he wrote.
