Views on the preparation of elections in Donbas differ a lot, which makes it hard to reach a consensus, Foreign Minister of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated during a statement to the press.
“We discussed preparations to local elections in Donbas yesterday and today. The parties have very different views on the matter. It’s hard to reach a consensus. We’ve also discussed the issue of refugees and IDPs, living on the territories of Ukraine and Russia”, - Steinmeier informed.
