The law on the status of Donbas will be presented for voting in the Verkhovna Rada due to the pressure of the U.S. and the EU, as Igor Pilayev, a political scientist, said on air of 112 Ukraine.

“I think that the law on Donbas special status will, probably, be voted for, as Europe and the U.S. are pressing. The ruling fractions will have to adopt this law on the prolongation of the special status,” he claimed.

“Yet, the law has not come in force and it all remains in name only. Nobody carries out political talks on the crises. We remember, that the Normandy Four has been gathered a long time ago, and the Minsk formt is actually coming to a halt,” the expert added.

Reportedly, Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko sent to the Parliament a draft bill, offering to extend the special status of Donbas until the end of the next year. 

The document envisages that the special order of local governance will be extended in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions by December 31, 2019.

The special status, however, will only start working when the aggressor country withdraws all illegal armed formations, militants, mercenaries, and vehicles from Ukraine.

As we reported, since Tuesday morning, Russian mercenaries attacked Ukrainian positions in Donbas 34 times. That resulted in casualties among the Ukrainian forces, as one Ukrainian serviceman deceased, and another two more were wounded.
