The issue of "special status" for CAFLO is not discussed at the talks in Minsk and in the Normandy format. This was stated in an interview with LB.ua by assistant of Vlolodymyr Zelensky, Andriy Yermak.
"The special status of the L/DNR is not a subject of negotiations either in Minsk or in the Normandy format. It is not even discussed", - Yermak noted.
However, he noted that the conduct of elections in the uncontrolled territories "are considered only in accordance with Ukrainian laws".
"Exceptionally. We are interested in the situation in Donbass to be resolved and the elections to be held as soon as possible. To be honest, I do not know. I have not heard from Vadym Prystaiko about the spring", - he said.
To a clarifying question about what Prystaiko spoke about elections throughout the country, including in the Donbass, he replied: "I believe it is correct that the elections in Donbass to be held simultaneously with local elections throughout Ukraine".
