Special Representative of the U.S. Department of State for Ukraine Kurt Volker considers the adoption of the law on extending for a year the special status of certain regions of Donbas as Ukraine's step towards peace.

"Special status extension shows #Ukraine taking tough steps for peace. Hope #Russia now acts to make peace - time to end conflict," Volker wrote on Twitter.

As Ukrinform reported, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading the bill on creating the necessary conditions for a peaceful settlement of the situation in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The respective decision was supported by 229 lawmakers at a parliament meeting on Friday.
