Talking about the things that will be worked out, there is a law on Donbas reintegration that clearly specifies particular issues from one point of view; from another point of view, there is the preparation of the court suits and the complex of the measures necessary for the occupied territories of Donbas and areas adjacent to them. The parts of this plan were worked out in the Ministry of Occupied Territories under the guidance of Zubko and in the National Security Council. Now, these things should be united. A lot of issues, social, infrastructure and economic will be united," he said.
