The so-called "DNR" and "LNR" undertook the obligations to be part of Ukraine. Such a statement was made by the acting Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Danego on the air of one of the separatist channels.
Responding to the question of the TV host, whether he accepts the idea of preserving the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and, consequently, the return of the republics to the jurisdiction of the Ukrainian government, he replied that this is the only possible scenario.
"As part of the Minsk agreements, we undertook certain obligations, so it is just the task of building the whole logic of the process proceeding from the fact that the territories of the LNR and DNR should have absolute independence within the state of Ukraine", - he said.
Otherwise, according to the representative of the militants, the "republics" will not be able to obtain international recognition. "Nevertheless, in order to gain world recognition, we must go exactly along this path (to return to the legal field of Ukraine - OstroV)... There is no other mechanism for now. We cannot resist the whole world community and state that we are the only right ones and that we do not care about other opinions...", - Danego said.
He unreasonably suggested that if the "DNR/LNR" refuses to be part of Ukraine, the world community can use force against them.
At the same time, once again Danego is cunning, declaring the adherence of the terrorist republics to the Minsk agreements and declaring that restoring the territorial integrity of Ukraine is the way to recognize the fake "republics".
"We need to reach this level of interaction with Kyiv, and then decide further future of the republics... In order our opinion on self-determination, on the prospects for the life of the republic to matter, it is necessary first to achieve a full dialogue with those whose the opinion is actually significant in this matter", - the representative of the militants re-twisted the essence of the Minsk agreements.
As reported, the Minsk agreements, first of all, provide for the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine by providing the temporarily occupied territories of Donbass with the status of "districts with a special order of local self-government". Alexander Zakharchenko’s signatures are under all documents signed in Minsk. Such concepts of the "DNR" or "LNR", as well as the posts of the "heads of republics", are not mentioned in the Minsk documents at all.
