The Steinmeier formula for the settlement of Donbas conflict does not provide for an amnesty for the militants of the self-proclaimed "DNR" and "LNR". Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko stated this in an interview with Hromadske.

"There is not a single word about the amnesty, nothing," he said.

According to Prystaiko, this plan deals with the the holding of elections, the temporary application of the law on special status and its permanent effect.

The Foreign Minister believes that this document is "very widely interpreted", despite repeated explanations.

Earlier, Prystaiko said that one of the conditions for Normandy Four (Ukraine, Germany, France, Russia) leaders' meeting "is the written approval of the Steinmeier formula at a meeting of the Tripartite Contact Group for the settlement in Donbas.

Answering the question of whether Ukraine agrees to receive the written confirmation of Steinmeier formula text before the Normandy Summit, Prystaiko said:

"Yes, this is one of two conditions for the meeting of the leaders, which we agreed upon. The second one is the expectation of troops withdrawal on three precincts. Then Russian representatives added the third condition as sounds like "clear wording for the leaders' statements", the Minister said.

The Steinmeier Plan is the formula according to which the occupied part of Donbas should receive temporary special status during the elections in these territories, which will be held in accordance with the Minsk agreements under Ukrainian law.
