The new head of the Ukrainian delegation at the Minsk talks, Leonid Kravchuk, said that he does not consider giving Donbass a special status as a compromise, since in this case it will turn into "a separate state with some kind of special political powers."
“But I can perceive not a“ special status ”, but a“ special management system ”in these regions. This is already a compromise. Management, but not status, "- said Kravchuk during an interview with" Public ".
Kravchuk noted that such a compromise will not affect the country's sovereignty. It will also help citizens start solving complex issues and attract investment to Donbass. “In order to restore life relatively quickly and give people a chance to work, earn money and live normally,” the politician stressed.
Prior to that, it became known that the ex-President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma left the contact group on the settlement of the conflict in Donbass. He served as the plenipotentiary representative of Kiev in the contact group from 2014 to 2018, after which he resigned due to age and physical fatigue, but Kuchma was re-appointed to this post last June.
Leonid Kravchuk, appointed to this post, announced his readiness to make compromises on the issue of resolving the conflict in Donbass.
