The self-proclaimed “DPR” and “LPR” allegedly tentatively agreed to be autonomy within Ukraine.
About this in the air of “112 Ukraine” said the Chairman of the Political Council of the party “Opposition platform – For Life” Viktor Medvedchuk.
“I’m sure that if we realize the peace opportunities in the Donbas and stop fighting, including our concept plan, which Donetsk, Luhansk, and Moscow have already given preliminary consent to, the free economic zone in these uncontrolled territories today and the issues related with financial, economic and business activities in these territories,” said Medvedchuk.
Earlier in January 2019, Vladimir Putin’s best friend Viktor Medvedchuk, stated the need to create an “autonomous Donbas region” with this status in the Constitution of Ukraine.
The thesis on the need for the federalization of Ukraine and the fixation in the Constitution of a special status for the Donetsk and Lugansk regions has been repeatedly expressed by the official Kremlin. In addition, Russia demanded an amnesty for the so-called “leaders” of the occupied regions of Donbas and also suggested that regions under Russian control should elect representatives to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, who would have the right to veto decisions regarding the foreign policy vector of Ukraine’s development.
In early February, Medvedchuk was prosecuted against possible treason and separatism.
