Andriy Yermak, the Assistant of the President of Ukraine, notes that the implementation of Steinmeier formula has several stages. He also said that the formula was not the law but the basis for a bill. Yermak stated that on his Facebook page.
At the same time, Yermak assured that all the decisions would be made with the knowledge of society.
"But this (Steinmeier formula implementation - ed.) will be later, and now we must achieve the ceasefire. And we are working on it. Make conclusions, based on the results of our actions, not the suggestions," Yermak wrote.
As it was reported earlier, one of the conditions of the Normandy four leaders (Ukraine, Germany, France and the Russian Federation) was to agree on the Steinmeier formula in a written form during the session of Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on Donbas conflict settlement.
Vadym Prystaiko, Ukraine's MFA head noted that Trilateral Contact Group did not agree upon the elections on the occupied territory in the written form due to a technical mistake on September 18.
