Five years ago, Minsk hosted a historic negotiation to settle the armed conflict in Donbass with the participation of the Normandy Four — Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine — and representatives of the DPR and the LPR, which later resulted in the adoption of the UN Security Council’s special resolution. DPR People’s Council deputy Alexander Malkov issued a statement in this regard.

“It was the Resolution of the UN Security Council that laid down the idea of political reset of the Ukrainian constitutional order through amendments to the principal law of Ukraine.

The special political status of the DPR and the LPR, which the Resolution provides for, means in the legal context the recognition of the results of the local referendums in May 2014 at the constitutional level, as well as the results of the elections to the DPR and LPR government agencies in November 2014 and 2018.

It is quite obvious what the Soros and American power structures are trying to “rethink” in Ukraine today. But any decisions aimed at the legal adjustment of the UN Security Council Resolution’s wording are objectively impossible. They need to elaborate a new Resolution, but that’s another story.

However, they will have to assume a meaningful and professional approach to the talks. That is why Alexey Reznik, one of the lead experts-negotiators from Ukraine, is proposed as a candidate for Minister of Occupied Territories.

There was another change in the composition of the Ukrainian party, according to Ukraine’s presidential office. Vladimir Zelensky replaced Valeriya Lutkovska with General Major Gennady Kuznetsov at the talks in Minsk. Gennady Kuznetsov is an SBU general major and ex-chief of the SBU’s Alpha Special Force. In 2014 and 2015, he headed the SBU Special Operations Center for Combating Terrorism.

Starting February 2014, the Minsk talks have been a historic international venue, where the political recognition of the DPR and the LPR is gradually taking place,” Alexander Malkov stated.
