The outcome of negotiations of the Normandy Four parties (Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia) will define the fate of the draft law on the special status of Donbas. Dmytro Razumkov, the head of the Ukrainian Parliament said so in an interview with ICTV channel.
"Yes, the [incumbent] law expires in the end of the year, and we'll have to submit and vote for the new one. A lot will depend on the Normandy format negotiations, and our further actions will be based on that", he said.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the future law on the special status of Donbas will be discussed both in the Normandy format and with Ukrainian society. It is to be implemented only after adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
